Why Use ThermaCork Standard 

Insulation in Construction?

 

It's the Natural Choice

It's a 100% natural product that supports cork forests, which in turn host a wide range of plants and animals, support local economies, and help reverse planetary damage by absorbing carbon dioxide in the atmosphere and avoiding soil desertification. Once produced, the finished product actually has a negative carbon footprint. The process of production, from harvest to production, is one of the most sustainable sustainable business practices on Earth.

It's an Energy Saver

Cork insulation will drastically reduce energy consumption, and its energy saving qualities will last decades, far longer than most choices. This is due to cork's high insulating range, stability, and its reduction of thermal bridging. 


Superior Qualities

Cork is incredibly stable and can cope with major thermal variations, between (-) 292 degrees F to (+) 248 degrees F. It's hypoallergenic and free of all domestic toxins, all while preventing mold by its ability to "dry through" layers. It's high on the insulating range (R-4 per inch), reduces thermal bridging, and its thermal resistance does not decrease over time like man-made foam. It has excellent sound isolation, is dimensionally stable, and resistant to compression.
