Thermal CorkShield™ offers superior properties to stucco and paint.
Our product will not only save you on utilities but also has other amazing properties like:
One of the properties of cork is that it will not go below 0° or above 30° C. This means that the surface of your home or building will feel cool in the summer and warm in the winter. This creates a Thermal Break reducing your energy bills.
Non combustible does not propagate flames nor does it release incandescent particles.
The Corks volume is made up of 88% air. This translates to a low density, between 0.12 and 0.24 Litres/2.2 Kilogram, reducing structural concerns.
Our cork will make your home or building quieter by absorbing sound. This is why sound studios still use cork to help prevent sound reverberation.
Our product has elastic properties which means that it can expand and contract depending on the weather. Unlike stucco and paint, our product will not chip or crack.
HIGH FRICTION COEFFICIENT:
The cork is lined with micro suction cups that permit it to adhere to the surface without allowing it to slide.
The diffusion of liquids and gases through the cork is very difficult; it allows vapors to escape to the outside through the plasmodesmos.
ABSORBS IMPACTS, AERO-ELASTICITY:
As our product is flexible it will absorb impact, which helps to protect any surface that it is applied on. This will extend the life or your home or building.
POISSON REGRESSION COEFFICIENT:
When the cork is stretched on one direction no deformation occurs in the Perpendicular direction. This allows it to conform to formations of other materials that it is applied to.
EASE OF USE:
Modifying the water content of the facilitates its management to become more elastic, and soft.
In addition to the natural forests many countries are now planting new trees for cultivation so that there is actually an increase of cork trees in the world.
During the trimming of the bark, the cork tree releases large amounts of oxygen, replenishing the air we breathe.
Our product is 100 percent cork, The bark is taken off of the tree every 8 to 10 years on average. The bark can be removed from the tree many times over 200 plus years and will not cause any damage to the tree.
