Cork Polymer Composites

Materials based on Cork Waiste

19/2010

So-called Cork Polymer Composites (CPC) offer product designers and interior designers new application opportunities. The individual cork particles are bound in a plastic which when heated, can be formed into almost any product geometry. CPCs are fully recyclable and thus help to conserve natural cork resources. Depending on the application, specific material qualities can be determined by the proportion of polymers – ranging from rigid to highly flexible. A softening agent is not required in the process. The high level of water vapor permeability and the excellent noise and vibration absorbing properties make the new material ideal for a range of sporting articles and orthopedic products. The heat isolating qualities are also particularly interesting for the building industry.
