How to fix decorative cork wall tiles and tools to use?
Decorative cork wall tiles are a fine material that can be fixed in a variety of ways. The cheapest and the easiest method to fix it by gluing with cork glue. We recommend Wakol D-3540 that can be found in our ‘Cork Glues’ section. Our advice is to use around 120 grams of glue per sheet, which means that 0.8kg of glue is enough for 6 sheets, and a bucket of 2.5kg -20 sheets. Of course using cork glue is not obligatory. The most widely used fixing glues and strong wood binders. It is best to choose a product with good initial tack, as it will make the job easier and faster, especially for the less experienced.
What make cork wall tiles so special?
Perfect thermal and acoustic isolation. Cork has an extremently low conductivity of heat and noise. It is always warm to touch, does not permeate nor absorbs our body heat. Contrary to other materials cork keeps its isolation properties in a wide range of temperatures. All this thanks to a special structure that is impossible to achieve with modern technology where for every cubic centimetre there are 40 million independent cells full of air. Each and every one of these perfect cells will incessantly, 24 hours a day, protect you and your family against cold, noise, vibrations and moisture.
Impact on microclimate. Natural cork for walls was properties that allow for the stabilization of temperature and humidity. It has a positive impact on the room’s microclimate and acoustic. It is an effective way to isolate the space from the negative influence of construction materials.
Naturalness and ecology. Cork wall board is 100% natural and environmentally friendly during the production process, as well as during further usage. It doesn’t contain any harmful additives and useless fillers.
Antistatic and hypoallergenic. There are no electric charges gathering on the cork’s surface so it doesn’t pick up the static. Due to this fact it neither attracts nor absorbs dust. It doesn’t cause allergies and doesn’t pose a threat to the asthmatics.
Damage resistance. Due to its honeycomb structure it is much more abrasion resistant than other underlays even with high coefficient of friction. Can wood fibres withstand a hammer blow?
Vibration isolation. Thanks to its particular porous structure and high elasticity cork wall panels does not transfer vibrations. What is why natural cork absorbs sound waves and vibrations perfectly.
Neutrality. One of cork’s additional qualities is its chemical indifference. Cork for walls does not react with liquids, doesn’t have taste nor smell and it doesn’t affect health. Thanks to the presence of tannins and lack of protein cork is not susceptible to humidity and rotting.
Lightness. 90% of cork’s volume and 50% of its mass is air. Cork wall is a material 5 times lighter than water, and since it is impermeable, it is unsinkable too. This was one of the cork’s properties that were known and used for thousands of years.
Fire resistance. Cork tiles for walls are naturally fire resistant materials. When in contact with fire it burns without a flame and therefore doesn’t release any toxic gases.
Sustainable production process. Natural cork wallpaper is made from the bark of the cork tree, the ever-green type of cork oak that covers the wide areas of Mediterranean coast. The layer of hard cork of a few to a dozen or so centimetres is separated from the trunk in the 10-year periods without any damage to the tree itself.
What mistakes to avoid?
Last but not least! Natural cork wall is a product that is very sensitive to changes in humidity. If the humidity drops the sheet will shrink. Due to changing conditions during warehousing and transport we recommend resting the natural cork for 48 hours in the same conditions it will be installed. This will prevent from creating any gaps between the decorative cork sheets. Such situations are very common especially during winter and autumn seasons, when cold and moist wall cork is delivered to a warm and dry space. That is why any natural cork purchases should be done with a few days notice to be able to prepare it correctly and, at the same time, avoid additional costs and unwanted stress.
