AcousticorkMozelos, Portugal—Amorim Cork Composites launched a new product range of cork with by-products from other industries, the Acousticork by Amorim, which provides sound insulation and impact noise control in buildings. Cork combines the high technical performance that is required by the market, with the sustainability credentials required to guarantee the future of cities, according to the company.

Growing urbanization and increasing population levels in urban areas are spawning increasingly stringent noise and vibration standards and regulations. As a result, there is higher demand for high-quality and sustainable sound and vibration insulation systems. In response to this need, the company said it released the Acousticork by Amorim range, which offers efficient and more environmentally friendly solutions, such as cork-based underlayments, underscreeds and materials for vibration control.

The Acousticork by Amorim underlayments offer high performance, protect the building’s floor and guarantee the ability to withstand high and variable loads, according to the company. When installed under a floor, the underlayments provide greater comfort, protection and longevity, for ceramic, wood, LVT or laminated floors.

The Acousticork range also includes underscreeds to meet the most demanding acoustic requirements. Intended to reduce the propagation of impact noise and improve the acoustic insulation of buildings, an underscreed is a resilient underlayment applied to the floor between the structural slab and the screed during the construction process, according to the company. This range offers resilient layers made from natural and recyclable materials.

Another application in which cork is equally valued is in vibration control materials due to the decoupling of the elements. When applied consistently throughout the building, these materials significantly improve quality of life and extend the equipment’s working life, according to the company.

The mission of the Acoustic by Amorim range is “Building comfort with sustainability” as it combines excellent performance with a lower carbon footprint, through the various solutions offered to the market, according to the company.

The mixture of cork composites with polymers from different industries, following circular economy principles, results in a diversified portfolio of materials for acoustic, thermal and noise control insulation, guaranteeing durability of performance with stable properties of the material throughout the building’s working life, the company said.
