6 results found thermal insulation
Corkwall's composition makes it a natural thermal insulation material, eliminating thermal bridges and thus protecting a building from energy losses.
Excellent Thermal Insulation
The air inside the cells makes it an excellent insulator, leading to very low thermal conductivity, over a wide range of temperatures.
What are cork’s main features?
Cork benefits from properties such as thermal and acoustic insulation, resistance to fire and high temperatures, elasticity and compressibility, it is light and buoyant, and on top of all that, is natural, reusable and recyclable.
Cork’s Natural Power
Cork consists of a honeycomb structure, including thousands of microscopic cells, filled by an air-like gas and coated primarily by suberin and lignin. Suberin is the element that makes cork impermeable to liquids and gases, allowing it to age without deteriorating. In addition to its insulation capacity, cork has a se…
What is cork?
Cork is the bark of the Cork Oak tree (Quercus suber L). It is a completely natural raw material, with unique properties which give it an unrivalled character. It is light, impermeable to liquids and gases, elastic and compressible, provides thermal and acoustic insulation, it is a fire retardant and highly abrasion-re…
Is it more comfortable to walk on the Corkeen system?
Cork surfaces have sufficient capability to withstand heavy traffic and weight. One of cork’s characteristics is its "memory" and it therefore recovers well from compression, very much like a wine cork stopper that expands after being pulled out of a bottle. Due to cork’s thermal insulation properties, the tempera…
