Sustainably transform the look of your home, deck, or dock with Vipeq Thermal CorkShield.
DURABLE & MAINTENANCE FREE
Cork is easy to clean, holds shape and colour, and is water, mildew and impact resistant. Cork will fade less than 1% in colour annually, in comparison to paint at 10%. This makes cork an ideal material for resurfacing in the Kenora and surrounding cottage country area.
INSULATES & PROTECTS YOUR HOME
When cork is applied to the surface of your property, it naturally protects your home.
Cork's thermal qualities keep your home cool in summer and warm in the winter, helping you save on expensive utility bills.
Cork's natural fire-retardant qualities can slow fires and help prevent against damage.
Cork is an incredibly sustainable product. When cork is harvested the trees aren't cut down, instead their bark is carefully stripped away - a process that can be done every 8-10 years over the average tree's 200 year life span. During this process large amounts of oxygen are released into the environment.

Vipeq Thermal CorkShield Properties
Lightness: Since 88% of its volume is air, this translates to a low density, between 0.12 and 0.24 Quarts/Lb.
Elasticity: Is the capacity to recover the initial volume after justly undergoing a deformation, such as, its utilization in corking the bottle.
Thermal Insulation: Its natural function is to protect the tree that it comes from. Its temperature range of 32° to 85 ° F. provides a resistance to heat 30 times higher than concrete thanks to its alveolar structure, low water content and lack of conductivity of its compounds.
High Friction Coefficient: The cork is lined with micro suction cups that permit it to adhere to the surface without allowing it to slide.
High Impermeability: The diffusion of liquids and gases through the cork is very difficult: it allows vapors to escope, to the outside, through the plasmodesmos
Fire Retardant: Non combustible does not propagate flames nor does it release incan-lescent particles.
Absorbs Impacts, Aero-Elasticity: This implies that the impact not only affects the point of contacted, but also extends to the adjacent zones, which permits it to absorb the impact.
Poison Regression Coefficient = 0: When cork is stretched in one direction no deformation occurs in the perpendicular direction. This allows it to conform to formations of other materials that it is applied too,
Acoustic Insulation: Depending on your installation and combination with other materials it reduces noise between 8 and 18 decibels. If applied on both sides of a wall it duplicates its acoustic action.
Non Poisonous: Its lack of toxicity has allowed it to be present in mans daily
life since antiquity times.
Balance with Nature: Removal of the bark of the Cork, is performed, initially at age 40-50, and then each 9 years, and provokes rejuvenation, lengthening the life of the same tree for up to 200-500 years.
Fauna: The cork tree or corkwood grows in natural forests which are a protective reserve for a large quantity of fauna and flora.
Environmental Improvement: During the trimming of the bark, the cork tree releases large quantities of Oxygen, fixing the air we breathe.
Ease of Use: Modifying the water content of the cork facilitates its management to become more elastic, and soft.
Ecological 100%: The process of extraction, manufacture and application of the cork material is done without any environmental impact.
Low Water Content: Moisture balance of the Cork with the environment is typically 6%, making impossible for microor. ganisms or insects to reproduce giving it unlimited durobil-
