The bark of the cork oak can be removed every 10 years. The bark is processed by cooking and grinding it. Then, the material is subjected to three-dimensional cutting in different thicknesses and it is colored with a pigment. This results in a wallcovering made of 100% cork with unique esthetic and acoustic values.
These tiles consist of 100% cork
The production process
- The bark of the cork oak grows naturally and is removed from the tree once every ten years.
- The bark is then boiled and ground after drying so that it can be processed. The coloring of the cork is done with pigment.
- Cork is glued with the resin from the bark itself.
- The tiles can then again be ground to make new products.
By removing the bark, the tree can assimilate more CO2.
Cork is already being used in large numbers as a wall finish for both private and business clients. Cork is also used as a wall finish in schools and offices to improve the acoustics in the rooms.
- By removing the bark, the tree is able to absorb more CO2 – which is better for the environment!
- For the processing of the cork, electricity is used that is produced by incinerating the (residual) waste cork.
- Cork is glued with the resin from the bark, so that a 100% natural product remains!
- The cork tile can be recycled in its entirety: it can be ground again to make new products. This means there is little to no waste from cork.
- Sound absorbing
- Anti allergenic
