Expanded insulation cork sheets are natural, balanced and unbeatable cork products that, with this special type of agglomerated cork, although compared in terms of its insulation properties to polystyrene or mineral wool, do not contain polyurethane or any other fillers or additives. Due to the high temperature processing treatment it expands (similarly to popcorn), and suberin that is released during the process, which is a natural adhesive, binds the expanding grains. This way we produce a wonderful, natural and sustainable material that offers a perfect vibroisolation, thermal insulation and acoustic isolation and is eagerly used in construction.
A noisy neighbour?
Expanded cork wall panels can be a great mean for insulation and thermal isolation. Fixed on the wall or ceiling is an acoustic insulation and eliminates all the sounds coming from the other side. If the wall is thin and the noise is of great inconvenience, it is worth to consider a light construction of 30-40mm cork insulation panel, air gap or mineral wool and closing plasterboard or OSB panel. In the majority of cases the placement of the 10mm wall cork insulation panel will be sufficient for reducing the noise. We sell cork panels in a variety of dimensions and density, so every customer can buy those they really need.
Looking for a little privacy?
If the issue at hand is more serious than just a loud TV then a expanded decorative cork insulation panel is an answer to the problem. A panel 20 to 25mm thick will be enough to achieve privacy in one’s own home. It is worth not finishing the cork panel after the fixture as its irregular structure will disperse sounds more effectively and eliminate any echoes, increasing our comfort. As the technical cork may not be appealing to everyone, we offer a wide range of decorative cork. What is more, our cork insulation panels can be finished in a variety of ways. As it does not react to any chemicals, cork can be painted with all kinds of paints, finished with lacquer, covered with wallpaper or simply left as it is, since it has natural beauty.
Freezing outside and the walls are ice-cold?
40 million cells full of air in every cubic centimetre gives thermal conductivity of 0.037 W/mK. What does this mean? It means no more high gas bills and much more warmth in the apartment. Just 10-15mm expanded cork insulation panel is enough to make even the coldest walls warm to the touch. But the 20-25mm cork insulation sheets will provide enough insulation and will keep the warm air inside to turn it into a comfortable and cosy living space.
Cork insulation, which is much healthier than any other material, can be used to protect buildings from noise, heat, cold and excessive vibrations. Not only floors but also ceilings, concrete leveling elements, roofs, inner and outer walls can be insulated using expanded cork. Thanks to its various properties such as indifference to temperature and humidity changes, resistance to mechanical damage as well as the fact that it does not emit any toxic fumes cork insulation boards are perfect and can be used in a variety of ways.
