Amorim Cork Composites launched a new product range of cork with by-products from other industries, providing sound insulation and impact noise control in buildings.
Cork is a 100% natural, recyclable and reusable raw material, and Acousticork by Amorim underlayments offer high performance, protect the building's floor and guarantee the ability to withstand high and variable loads. When installed under a floor, the underlayments provide greater comfort, protection and longevity, whether for ceramic, wood, LVT or laminated floors.
In addition to the underlayments, the Acousticork range also includes underscreeds - an ideal product to meet the most demanding acoustic requirements. Intended to reduce the propagation of impact noise and improve the acoustic insulation of buildings, an underscreed is a resilient underlayment applied to the floor between the structural slab and the screed during the construction process. This range offers resilient layers made from natural and recyclable materials, that improve quality of life and work environments.
Another application in which cork is equally valued is in vibration control materials, which isolate the sources of vibration in buildings, due to the decoupling of the elements. When applied consistently throughout the building, these materials significantly improve quality of life and extend the equipment’s working life.
The mixture of cork composites with polymers from different industries, following circular economy principles, results in a diversified portfolio of materials for acoustic, thermal and noise control insulation, guaranteeing durability of performance with stable properties of the material throughout the building’s working life.
