Thermal Resistance (R)

It is a heat property and a measurement of a temperature difference by which an object or material resists a heat flow. Thermal resistance is the reciprocal of thermal conductance. The lower the Rλ,B value of the flooring system and/or the R value of the underlay, the better suited the flooring system will be for use o…

Thermal comfort

The best way to insulate your room against cold is to install an Amorim underlay. Cork has excellent thermal properties. Its ability to maintain warm floor temperatures and more comfort when walking makes cork one of the material used to achieve high thermal resistance values. The higher the value, the better the insul…

Thermal insulation

In contrast to impact sound, thermal insulation is the capacity of the material to resist cold or heat. By increasing the thickness of the underlay, the thermal resistance also increases. Cork acts as a natural insulation in spaces where underlays are installed because of its ability to maintain the temperature inside…

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…
