Excellent Acoustic Insulation

· 

Cork has low conductivity to noise and vibration. This is because the gaseous components contained in cork are enclosed in small impermeable compartments, isolated from each other by a moisture-resistant substance.



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.





Excellent Resistance to Fire and High Temperatures

· 

Cork is also a natural fire retardant: it burns without a flame and does not emit toxic gases during combustion.





Excellent Elasticity and Compressibility

· 

It is the only solid which, when compressed on one side, does not increase in volume on another; and as a result of its elasticity it is able to adapt, for example, to variations in temperature and pressure without suffering alterations.


Extremely Light and Buoyant

· 

Over 50% of its volume is air, which makes it very light - it weighs just 0.16 grams per cubic centimetre and can float.





Hypoallergenic

· 

Because cork does not absorb dust, it helps protect against allergies and does not pose a risk to asthma sufferers.




Impermeable to Liquids and Gases

· 

Thanks to the suberin and ceroids contained in the cell walls, cork is practically impermeable to liquids and gases. Its resistance to moisture enables it to age without deteriorating.





High Friction Resistance and Good Resilience

· 

Cork is extremely resistant to abrasion and has a high friction coefficient. Thanks to its honeycomb structure, its resistance to impact or friction is greater than that of other hard surfaces.




Comfortable and Warm Feeling

· 

The natural texture of cork combines softness and flexibility to the touch with a naturally uneven surface. The variable degree of irregularity is given by the type of cork used and the finish chosen.
