Cork Products for the Picture Framing & Matting Industry
Cork has been in commercial use since the 5th century to seal wine amphora and is still the standard for wine stoppers today. Since then, the commercial and industrial uses for cork have grown exponentially as there as so few renewable materials that meet such a wide range of applications. This is particularly true in the Picture Framing & Matting industry.
The unique properties of cork make it an all-purpose solution to a vast array of commercial and industrial uses. The structure and composition of cork makes it impermeable to liquids and gases, help to provide its tremendous elasticity and make it extremely durable, light and flexible.
In recent years, Picture Framing & Matting and designers have rediscovered the value of natural materials including cork. Already highly valued for its aesthetics, cork’s functional uses add even more to its widespread appeal.
Every year, new functional and decorative uses for cork rolls and sheets are uncovered. Architects, designers, manufacturers, scientists and educators make use of cork due to its buoyancy, flexibility, resiliency, moisture resistance and insulating properties. It meets some of the most demanding industrial and commercial applications and is still environmentally friendly.

Flexibility: Due to its extremely resilient composition, cork is very resistant to compression and has a high level of elasticity.
Moisture Resistant: The cellular structure of cork makes it very resistant to moisture and lends itself to being mold and mildew resistant.
Heat Insulating: Cork is one of the least efficient conductors of both heat making it very useful for industrial and building applications.
Stain Resistant: It is resistant to oil, grease and salt water, which makes it suitable for laboratory, factory, gymnasium, commercial and industrial flooring.
