WHY USE CORK?
100% natural product
Expanded cork agglomerate is a sustainable material for sustainable construction.
Simultaneous thermal, acoustic and anti-vibration insulation
Durability and Recycling
Virtually unlimited durability, maintaining technical characteristics.
High Thermal Inertia
Ability to increase Thermal Delay (or lag) and Reduce Thermal Amplitude.
Indoor Air Quality
The material is rated A + according to French regulations.
The high CO2 sequestration determines that the material's carbon footprint is negative.
Very low built-in energy
93% of energy consumption in the manufacture of the product is biomass that results from the process itself.
CORK FOR GREEN ROOFS
Thermal resistance of the roofing solution equal to 1.96 m2ºC / W, not considering the surface and slab resistances. Calculation value for saturated materials;
The simulations in a bioclimatic chamber reveal that, after a period of precipitation, the system recovers quickly to a behavior similar to that registered under normal conditions (without precipitation);
Maximum vertical drainage capacity above 20 liters / (min.m2) or 20 mm / min;
Retention capacity above 17 liters / m2;
Isolation to aerial sounds, determined in vertical acoustic chambers (EN ISO 10140), RW = 59 (-2; -8; -1; -8) dB. Result obtained with a reference slab.
