COMFORT

Cork, as a natural product, warms and enriches any interior. With over 40 million “cushion cells” per cubic centimeter, cork is a natural sound and thermal insulator. Cork floors are beautifully quiet and comfortable underfoot, warm and pleasant to the touch.

PROPERTIES OF CORK

The bark of the Cork Oak Tree has a unique honeycomb structure composed of tiny cells filled entirely with air. The properties of cork derive naturally from the structure and chemical composition of the extremely strong, flexible membranes that are waterproof and airtight.

It should be remembered that each cubic centimetre of cork’s structure contains between 30 and 40 million cells.
Because about 89% of the tissue consists of gaseous matter, the density of cork is extremely low, in the order of 0.12 to 0.20

HOW TO CARE FOR YOUR CORK?
