As a feedstock for the production of cork floors used the bark of cork oak, which grows only in certain parts of the world. Natural material with a combination of interesting properties made it the best flooring. The material has high damping properties, and therefore reduces the load when walking on it. On the market there are two versions of the material with the use of cork for the installation of floor coverings, the so-called adhesive and floating cork flooring. Floating cork floors are not rigidly fixed to the floor, is a separate panel, consisting of several layers of the substrate, and directly supporting structure of the surface layer mirror finish. The substrate can be used a variety of waterproofing materials that provide additional protection against moisture and noise. As a reinforcing layer of MDF panels are used to ensure the necessary strength coating. The outer layer is made of cork. Coupling between the panels are made with tongue and groove joint with a special lock so you can get a unified and solid surface. Adhesive cork panels are small rugs, five millimeters thick, made of compressed cork, mounting by adhesive bonding.
