Damping is the dissipation of energy, usually by releasing it in the form of low-grade heat. The loss factor quantifies the level of damping of a material, it is the ratio of energy dissipated from the system to the energy stored in the system for every cycle. Due to corks closed cell structure filled with air, cork ha…
Why is damping important for construction?
Damping is essential for vibration control in construction. With a high loss factor, cork is an excellent damping tool, boosting security and comfort in buildings and infrastructures.
Vibration Control and Compressed Layer Damping
Noise reduction in transformers & reactors through decoupling and isolation.
Exceptional damping proprieties helping to reduce structural vibration and slamming effect
Composite Core Materials
Delivers features such as noise attenuation and vibration damping as well as thermal insulation.
Can be used in many different contexts, ranging from applications that require cushioning and damping against impacts or structural vibrations and also serving as protection padding - impeding the ingress of dust, water or other foreign objects.
Cork's air filled closed cell structure enables inherent damping of structural noise transmission, such as step noise and impacts throughout the decking surface and consequently increased acoustic performance.
In your opinion, what is the best way to minimise impact noise in buildings? Do you believe that cork-based materials can be part of the sol…
Vibration isolation is the most effective way to reduce structure-borne noise. Cork-based materials are highly resistant and, in addition to enabling vibration insulation, they also have good damping effects. Indoor acoustic performance is a key factor in increasing quality of life and I believe that cork-based materi…
Perfectly aligned with the philosophy of renewable energy, Corecork is the green material for green energy production. Renewable energy equipment like wind turbine blades are often subject to the unpredictable power of nature, Corecork’s functionality introduces damping into the composite structure reducing structural…
Cork composites for high performance
While cork has a higher loss factor than rubber – which is essential to the dampening function and consequent dissipation of energy – anti-vibration rubbers are isolative and offer very little damping. The combination of these two materials as a cork rubber composite brings added characteristics as a vibration isolatio…
Interior Primary Decking
ACM52 is a cork composite, a material specially formulated to be used as an interior primary deck covering for leveling and fairing with additional features. Due to the materials composition it significantly benefits weight reduction, being 2 to 5 times lighter than available primary decking’s therefore improving vesse…
