The basis for our flooring tiles or planks is agglomerated sheet material produced from the scraps of bark sheddings. This matter has the facade of compressed granules, which is exactly what it is, as part of its production includes non-toxic adhesive and high pressure bonding. To achieve each different appearance, it is necessary to laminate a thin veneer layer of cork on top of this core material. Lamination takes place at the time of original production, making the thin layer inseparable from the core. It is the veneer layer that carries the pattern and color scheme. There are many patterns to choose from, everything from those that favor bamboo to those that mimic marble.
The key to cork is its unique cellular structure of 14-sided, density packed air-filled cells. These cells give cork its thermal and acoustical insulation traits, its lightweight compressibility, fire-retardant, and liquid/gas impermeable qualities. Cork's structure is comprised of millions of air pockets, basically 50% of cork is actually air. The cellular structure of cork makes cork tile a natural insulator. Not only will these green floors be warm under foot they also absorb sound.
With a typical cork product, you could expect it to last from 10 to 20 years under normal circumstances.
