Сork granulate is the basis of cork tiles and prefinished cork flooring, which is mixed and then pressed by using of different methods with help of binder (polyurethane resins, phenolic resins). A short aeration time during production process with polyurethane resin provides a healthy and safe final product. One layer pressed cork plates of cork tiles are glued down to the subfloor. The prefinished cork flooring consists of several layers. Cork layer is a topsheet and HDF or MDF is a middle layer. For effortless floating installation these panels have a special click connection, so they should not have to be glued to the subfloor.
