Cork

Cork is the bark of the cork oak, a noble tree with very special characteristics, grown in the Mediterranean region, mainly Portugal.

It is a suitable product that has minimal impact on the environment.

Cork has a range of beneficial characteristics, including excellent resistance to oil and anti-vibration properties. Cork is also relatively cheap, but highly effective in sealing a wide range of applications, including electrical transformers and switchgear, fuel, and oil pumps. Cork is also commonly used as expansion jointing for flooring. As well as providing Cork sheeting and roll material, using our in-house manufacturing facilities, we can produce Cork strips, gaskets, and washers for a wide range of applications.

We can supply Cork sheeting in a variety of grades, including Neoprene bonded or Nitrile bonded Cork.
