The building industry can employ cork as a thermal barrier, sound insulator, vibration dampener and fire retardant. Cork can be utilized in roofs and ceilings, walls and floors, interiors and exteriors.
Cork"s unique physical and mechanical properties allow it to compress and immediately regain its original size under all weather and temperature conditions, making cork particularly useful in expansion and compression joints, and in concrete structures such as dams, tunnels, runways and highways. Because of these properties, cork is also used as underlayment for wood, ceramic and stone coverings.
As a thermal barrier cork is most useful. The industrial refrigeration industry is turning to cork as a very important energy saving factor. Cork"s thermal capacities make it ideal for use in interiors. Cork flooring is warming, quiet, comfortable, easy to clean and exceptionally resistant.
