MANUFACTURE OF CORK TILES AND THE ENVIRONMENT
Cork itself is a completely natural product that has no harmful chemicals in it. It is an ideal product for persons who require as natural an environment as possible. The cork bark is carefully taken off the cork oak tree and it re-grows again for being stripped every 9 years.
The binders used in our tiles are water based and FDA approved. They do not contain any nasty ingredients; they conform to class E1 in accordance with EN 717-1.
The sealants on our tiles give off no V.O.C’s as they are ultra violet cured and therefore totally inert.
Our Cork-A-Bond water based adhesive is also organic and has no V.O.C’s.
A booklet is available on HOW TO LAY CORK FLOORS SUCCESSFULLY.
This goes into detail with sub-floor preparations. It is supplied FREE with every order for cork floor tiles.
Due to a high cost of postage, we are not able to send you all the samples we would like to, but we will be pleased to send you a small sample of any tile you require in order to check colour or texture before ordering.
