Benefits of Using Cork
Environmentally friendly – Cork production is a lot more sustainable than other wood harvesting processes. Rather than felling the trees outright, cork production simply involves stripping the bark, before allowing the tree to continue to live and grow. Most cork oak trees live for around 300 years, and they’re harvested every 25 years.
On top of this, cork products and by-products are easy to recycle, and cork oak forests can be used to prevent desertification, and to house various endangered species. So if you want an environmentally friendly solution to your manufacturing needs, cork just might be exactly what you’re looking for.
Extremely Versatile – Cork is available in various grains, ranging from fine, to medium, to coarse, and each grain is ideally suited to a different set of applications.
At Sorcit, we are experts when it comes to finding the right material for your projects and your products. Our certified manufacturers are masters at making the most of cork, and can make use of such techniques as printing, moulding, and texturing to create the perfect solution for your great idea.
Unique Properties – Cork is highly elastic and nearly completely impermeable, which explains why it’s so often used in manufacturing bottle stoppers. However, these unique qualities also make cork ideally suited for use in more sophisticated and technologically advanced products. It’s naturally flame-retardant, which makes it perfect for use as insulation, and its low density makes it great for use in flotation devices. Finally, through mixing cork granules into concrete, you can create cement with a lower density, a lower thermal conductivity, and superior energy absorption.
