Cork consists of a tight web of up to 40 million cells per
cubic centimeter. The cell membranes retain gas, giving
cork its capacity to float, insulate and re-expand quickly
Cork is natural,
recyclable and biodegradable. No natural or man-made
material replicates its properties.
Cork retains unique
qualities of flexibility, elasticity and compressibility.
Its extreme resilience, impermeability, lightness and
insulating efficiency make it ideal for a large number of
flooring applications. Cork is hypoallergenic and mildew,
moisture, dust, and pollen resistant. Cork is anti-static;
it is recommended for use where computers and electronic
equipment are used.
Cork can be used anywhere
in the house (below and above grade) because it is
flexible, water-resistant, soft and warm.
