probkovoe-pokritieAdvantages of this material is that it is easy to install, has good sound and heat insulation.

The structure of cork panels are determined by methods of its processing. Sufficiently large pieces of bark simply cut into sheets similar to plywood veneer. Small pieces of irregular shape, and then the resulting comminuted material granulopodobny pressed into sheets of specified sizes. Cork wall coverings produced in rolls and 1 m in width and in the form of rings have a thickness of from 2 to 6 mm.

Cork coverings are mostly brown shades — natural gamma.

When calculating the required number, add 10% to repair damage and eliminating installation errors. In order to prevent thermal changes in size of cork pieces (after mounting on a wall, such a change may cause swelling), unpack it, and leave the room prior to installing about 48 hours. If the tube has a sheet form, pull it down to her (let it otvisetsya) much as possible to align.

The first type of slab cork coverage is a complete solution and can immediately be used for the installation by sticking on any basis. It has the following three-layer structure:

polyvinyl chloride and high-strength wear-resistant coating;

layer matched in color and fibers of natural cork;

PVC tile base (on its surface glue is applied).

Thanks to the good transparency of this layer is perfectly captures unique pattern of natural cork and high mechanical characteristics of layer guarantee a long life of the coating. This type of coating is produced in the form of panels measuring 300 × 300 mm with thickness of 3.2 mm. We recommend it for places with intense movement of people: kitchen, hallways, children’s rooms, etc…

The second type of tile cork is a set of components that create a warm floor or walls in the bedrooms, large rooms, bathrooms and toilets. The kit includes two parts:

actual plate 300 × 300 mm made of natural cork 4 mm;

varnish and sealant based on polyurethane (hereinafter — the sealant).

This coating has no seams between the plates, which makes it waterproof, waterproof properties of this type of coverage is especially appreciated by those who want to decorate their bathrooms and toilets. The absence of seams and will look good in the main room of the apartment. Thicker layers of cork make the warm walls and floor.

Feature of this type of coating is that it allows the repair surface and the, in the case of erasure of the transparent layer, it can be restored by re covering the surface of the sealant. It should be noted that this type of plate acquire its true image and a tree structure showing only after covering a transparent sealant. Both slabs of cork can be successfully used in the decoration of the walls.

For the first type of gluing tiles (on the basis of polyvinyl chloride) can be used traditional adhesives and mastics for PVC tiles. Moreover, for the second type of coating, we also provide a special adhesive that can be successfully used for the first coating type. The adhesive can be applied on the following bases: seamless cement screed, particleboard, gypsum, concrete. Highly absorbent, dusty or releasing the basics you need to be primed before assembly cover diluted dispersion adhesive solution.

The room in which the work carried out should be ventilated for 60 minutes when working with absorbent base and 90 minutes — when working with weakly absorbing base. At low temperature and high humidity increases the time of airing. It is not recommended to apply the adhesive at a temperature below 15 ° C and humidity above 75%. Base, cork, glue, and the room air temperature must be the same. If the components were newly introduced into the room, they should be soaked in it at least one day. Cork boards covered transparent encapsulant after they are well stuck to the substrate. The sealant applied in a thin layer with a fine-porous bead.

Do not use sprays. Couples sealant fire hazard! Therefore, during application of this coating, do not use near electrical machines with carbon brushes, do not smoke or light a fire Make sure that the material does not fall into the hands of children.

pre-drying time of the adhesive for 3 hours. Clay before applying you must stir well. Using a spatula or a roller-porous adhesive applied evenly on the substrate and on the opposite side of the plate of cork, avoiding gaps. Once both surfaces slightly dried up, apply and press pre-fitting cover, avoiding air bubbles. Raw excess adhesive removed with water. Consumption of glue 200 to 250 g / m2. Good quality surface is obtained by applying three layers of clear sealant. On 8-10 m2 consumes 1 liter of sealant. Within 12 hours it is possible to carry out the re-coating without intermediate sanding layers. Drafts reduce the airing time. pre-drying time of approximately 24 hours. The final hardness of the sealant becomes transparent after 8-14 days.

Sheet cork attached with glue. It is recommended to strengthen the cork cover, quick adhesives, which set as soon as the coating put on the wall. However, these adhesives are highly flammable, and their use must be well-ventilated room and comply with fire regulations. If you are installing in a humid place, use a special waterproof glue, tiles supplied by the manufacturer. Discuss article in the forum.
