Italian Cork is an impermeable, buoyant material, a prime-subset of bark tissue that is harvested for commercial use primarily from Quercus suber (the Cork Oak), which is endemic to southwest Europe and NorthWest Africa. Italian Cork is composed of Suberin, a Hydrophobic substance, and because of its impermeability, buoyancy, elasticity, and fire resistance, Also being insect repellent, you can forget about termites or any other bacteria growing under your feet or head. Italian Cork's bubble-form structure and natural fire resistance make it suitable for acoustic and thermal insulation in house walls, floors, ceilings and facades. The by-product of more lucrative stopper production, Corkboard is gaining popularity as a non-allergenic, easy-to-handle and safe alternative to petrochemical-based insulation products which are flammable and emit highly toxic fumes when burned.
