Sustainable by nature

Cork is 100% natural, reusable and recyclable, and from an environmental, social or economic point of view, one of the most versatile materials in the world.

Key characteristics of cork:

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.

Extremely Light and Buoyant

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


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

Comfortable and Warm Felling

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.

Impermeable to Liquids and Gases

Thanks to the suberin and ceroids contained in the cell walls, cork is pratically impermeable to liquids and gases. Its resitance to moisture enables it to age wihout deteriorating.

High friction resitance and Good Resilience

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