Cork is not wood, but the bark of Quercus Variabilis. It is a kind of oak, mainly distributed in the Qinling Mountains and the Mediterranean coast.
The gift of nature, recyclable and renewable resources
We've been very careful since we started to choose materials
Regular manual barking not only does not cause any damage to the tree itself, but also promotes the metabolism and growth of new bark, just like shearing wool, making cork a pure natural and recyclable renewable resource. This kind of bark is extremely precious and is known as "soft gold" in the international market.
Under the microscope, each cubic centimeter of cork contains 40 million cells. When subjected to external pressure, the cell and cell gap will shrink, and the internal pressure will rise. When the pressure is lost, the mixed gas pressure in the cell and cell gap will restore the cell to its original state.
Cork is not only elastic, but also regarded as an ideal material for heat insulation, insulation and flame retardant, antiskid and moisture proof, sound insulation and noise reduction, wear resistance and compression resistance.
Cork floating floors are usually assembled together with locking, which are easy to disassemble, also can greatly reduce installation costs and save time. Cork tiles need to be applied with adhesive, and related adhesives will also affect the firmness of the flooring. However, these two products have their own more suitable places. For example, floating cork floors are more suitable for temporary places, while places with high sealing requirements such as bathrooms require adhesive cork tiles.
