Healthy, Low Maintenance Protective Finish

The Cork ESSENCE line is prefinished with a non-toxic, low maintenance Xtramatt varnish based on a ceramic compound. No more refinishing like urethane finished cork floors! It provides the floor with a ZERO-VOC resistance without harmful additives that fits the most demanding needs of your home as well as commercial areas with moderate traffic.

The eco-friendly finish carries a 15-year residential warranty and a 5-year commercial warranty.

Plus, Wicanders' cork flooring products are certified under several strict indoor air quality programs such as Greenguard GOLD certification. The certification ensures low chemical emissions in products that are acceptable for use in sensitive environments like schools and healthcare facilities.

Corktech Benefits - Natural Comfort and Durability

Wicanders' Corktech technology combined with the unique natural properties of cork, provides a higher standard of flooring. It's really the perfect match between beauty, comfort and durability. 

Corktech uses an engineered multilayer structure which starts with an insulated cork underlay that reinforces cork's natural thermal and acoustic properties, resulting in a quieter environment and all-important energy cost savings. The compressed (or agglomerated) cork layer provides superior comfort, step sound reduction and warmth.  The cork veneer, or decorative cork layer that's available in a variety of colors and patterns, is protected by the highly resistant finish.

Corktech uses an engineered multilayer construction that starts with an integrated cork underlay, layered by a high density fiberboard (HDF), followed by a quality core layer of cork, then a cork veneer layer, and finally a protective surface.

Wicanders 'Corktech' Benefits - Cork is Comfort
A cork floor with the Corktech technology features the following benefits: SILENCE - Cork's natural properties make it an excellent sound absorber. Noise transmission between and within rooms is reduced by up to 53%.OPTIMAL TEMPERATURE - The unique thermal insulation features of cork provide an optimal floor temperature all year round, assuring a more warm and comfortable environment with energy cost savings. WALKING COMFORT - Cork floors are very comfortable to walk on due to cork's natural and inherent flexibility. Softer than wood, yet harder than carpet, cork offers the perfect mix to absorb heel strike impacts, relieving leg and back stress. IMPACT RESISTANCE - Cork floors have the ability to bounce back from hard impacts due to its elasticity and compressibility, which makes them durable and increases the life span of the floor.

Why Cork?



SUSTAINABLE FLOORING

Cork flooring is an incredibly sustainable product. Cork floors are the result of a circular economy model that turns production waste from the cork stopper industry into valuable and sustainable flooring products.

RENEWABLE

Cork is a natural raw material that comes from the bark of the cork oak tree. It's harvested by hand when the tree is 25 years old and every 9 years from then on. No cork trees are damaged or cut during harvesting and the bark regenerates itself after each extraction, making it a near-perfect example of a renewable resource. Cork is also biodegradable and recyclable.

Cork has been used as flooring in buildings like the Harvard Law Library and the Library of Congress due to its durability.  It resists cracking & scuff marks and is airtight to gas and liquid, yet still breathable.  When properly maintained, cork flooring can last 40 years or more!Cork (or more accurately, bark) harvesting is an eco-friendly process that's done without cutting down or destroying a single tree.  And there are strict time limits on the extraction period. During its long lifetime - upwards of 200 years - the tree is continually regenerating bark, which makes the cork forest industry an ideal example of renewable production.Cork is also a natural fire retardant thanks to its unique cell structure and waxy, fire-resistant substance called suberin. It gives a very low conductivity to heat. And it burns without a flame and does not emit toxic gases during combustion.Cork is a great option for allergy sufferers because it's naturally mold and mildew resistant due to the waxy substance inherent in cork.  AND it's anti-microbial.  Cork is a healthy alternative to dust and allergen-collecting carpets.
