Cork Underlayment - Rolls & Sheets

- Bulletin boards
- Art projects

The natural choice for sound control underlayment. Cork contains millions of air-filled pockets per cubic inch. These air pockets compress under pressure, regaining their shape once pressure is removed thereby creating a gentle cushiony surface flooring material. With cork you are literally walking on air! This same characteristic is responsible for cork’s success as an acoustic insulation.
100% Cork Composition Rolls can be used as an underlayment for ceramic tiles, wooden floors, and laminate floors like Pergo. The 1/4" thick cork is also used for bulletin boards and to help reduce noise. For stress crack prevention of tile, it is recommended that you use the 1/8" thick cork underlayment rolls.

(NOTE: The underlayment does Not contain microban. We mention this because some customers want to make sure that it does not. This underlayment is made in Portugal. It does not come from China because the quality of the cork underlayment is much better from Portugal.
The cork underlayment can be used with radiant flooring, however, if there is metal, do not have the metal touch the underlayment directly. It may burn it. The water tubing is fine. If it is metal, you want to install the radiant heating system first, put a thin layer of cement over it and then put the underlayment on top of that.)

the underlayment to the subfloor with this adhesive is only necessary if you
plan on attaching the flooring above the underlayment to the underlayment.

floating flooring would be laid on top of the underlayment and would not
need to be attached but ceramic tile would need to be attached.

- When using Cork Underlayment for bulletin boards, please use cork
underlayment that is 1/4" thick or more. Make sure to use pins that are
less than this so that they will not damage the wall behind the cork. As an
additional protection, you can also place a hard surface, such as wood, on
the wall before putting the cork up to stop anything sharp from going
through the wall.
NOTE - Cork underlayment is not recommended for use as the top layer of a floor. Our cork tiles and floating flooring have been designed specifically to be used as flooring. The cork underlayment is not dense enough to be used for the top of the floor. It would therefore not last very long. The cork underlayment works well under flooring or to use to make bulletin boards.
