Cork is the bark of the cork oak tree. The tree is a medium-sized, evergreen tree that grows in the cork oak forests of Western Mediterranean countries. Its the only tree whose bark regenerates.
It is a very light raw material.
Its elastic memory allows it to be compressed.
It is impermeable to liquids and gases
Cork is hydrophobic, highly resistant to moisture, and therefore to subsequent decay, and is an excellent thermal, acoustic, and vibration insulator.
Sustainable, 100 percent biodegradable, recyclable, and renewable.
Architectural products, aerospace and transportation components, consumer goods, construction products, as well as the final coverings for floors, walls, ceilings, facades, and roofs can be made with Cork.
