Rubbercork is an agglomerate composite, joining two primary products: high quality natural cork granules and rubber, natural or synthetic. The result is a final product, which, beyond being very wearresistant, is excellent oil and heat resistant, making it an ideal sealant for various types of applications in the automobile and electrical industry. It’s flexibility is also remarkable as it can be bent around sharp edges without breaking. Recently, the product has been used on an unlimited range of applications, from industrial flooring, underlayment etc., to anti-vibration insulation in many kinds of machines. The addition of rubber allows cork to have even more uses and applications. CORKSRIBAS has a modern and sophisticated up-to-date system for selecting cork granules of various sizes, qualities and specifications and then mixing them with natural or syntectic rubbers, depending on the application, followed by a sequence of operations requiring permanent control, to the final
product in block or cylinder shape.
The splitting is assured by the most sophisticated slicing tables (Fecken-Kirfel) specially designed and adopted, with perfect, permanent thickness control, meeting the most severe specifications in the field.
Rubbercork is an ideal sealant for various types of applications, due to cork’s recovery properties, which allows Rubbercork products to regain its original shape after compression, keeping its former shape, sealing and insulating properties.
The main applications for our Rubbercork grades are basically in the following areas;
- Automotive Industry sealing solutions (gaskets, etc,)
- Electrical transformers gaskets
- Many different types of gaskets for Industrial applications
- Acoustic and noise reduction (anti-vibration) for light & machinery, construction, railways, etc.
- Flooring and underlayment
CORKSRIBAS has a wide range of grades (please ask for our general catalogue) suitable for any application and tailor made solutions can be developed by our research lab (R&D) to meet almost any requirement from the Industry.
The Rubbercork products are available in blocks/sheets and sizes:
- 37”x25”, 40”x40”, 50”x30”
- Different thicknesses from 1mm up to 150mm
And Rubbercork rolls are manufactured on three different widths:
- 915 mm; 1000 mm; 1220 mm.
- Different lengths depending on the thickness, which is normally between 1mm and 8 mm.
Other sizes and customized lengths are also available on request.
