Go4cork: Cork underlays for improved flooring
But what makes cork such an ideal choice for floor underlayment? This natural material contains millions of air-filled pockets in every cubic inch, which improves its cushioning effect. When put under pressure, these air-filled pockets compress and retain their shape when the pressure is removed.
These same characteristic which make cork a perfect surface flooring material also enhances its success as an acoustic insulator. It is estimated that a quarter inch of cork can help to reduce noise levels by as much as 10 decibels. As an added bonus, cork underlayment also contributes to absorbing vibrations and act as a barrier for dampness.
So, even though cork is not recommended for a floor’s top layer, it makes for an excellent underlayer with wooden floors, laminate surfaces, ceramic tiles, stone, vinyl, and linoleum.
