cork composites

cork composites

A durable, low-maintenance, decay-resistant material with excellent thermal and acoustical insulation properties made of cork and recycled rubber. Its cellular structure traps air inside, which reduces noise and vibration, and gives floors natural shock absorption. A naturally occurring substance in cork repels insects and molds and protects cork from rotting when moist. See also: Biomaterials

You only need to look at the cork industry today, with DIAM and others introducing pulverized cryo-treated cork composites to know that there is a big problem and a simple solution.
In terms of failure and damage, cellular materials can absorb energy through plastic bending, buckling or even fracture of the cells' walls [28], Cork has excellent insulation properties (to air and water, for example) and its micro-agglomerated cork compound TB40 produced by Amorim Cork Composites [29] offers excellent fire, smoke and toxicity protection properties, as well as good mechanical behavior, processing characteristics, low water absorption and high damping behavior with reduction of structural vibration and noise generation.
The cabin is a conceptual vision shared by several companies of the future executive jet: Amorim Cork Composites, Couro Azul, INEGI, SETsa, Almadesign and Embraer.
