Cork is derived from the bark of cork oak trees and comprised of cellulose and suberin. What does that mean for you? A durable and water-resistant seal that’s also lightweight and buoyant. Cork is also 100% recyclable! Talk about an eco-friendly option.
But wait, there’s more! Cork can also hold its own against gases, solvents, and fire. Paired with its natural elasticity, cork gaskets can stretch, compress, or be pulled while still retaining their shape during engine operation.
Finally, cork’s hearty and impermeable nature makes it the perfect insulation material for tackling heavy electrical conduction, noise, or vibrations. It’s no wonder cork seals are a go-to in automotive, aerospace, construction, and piping applications.
