Materials & Finishings
Natural agglomerated dark cork and natural hemp rope or coloured cotton rope. Cork finished with the colourless aqueous coating with properties of water repellency, oil, stains and dirt as well as high resistance to UV and ageing. This also keeps the natural characteristics of the cork (touch and breathability).
More about the cork of Pipo
It is only used cork of the branches (falca) for the manufacture of cork granules. These are block clusters in an autoclave, being 100% natural process, without the use of additives. The technology consists of injecting water vapour through the pellets that will expand and agglutinate with the resins of the cork itself. This “cooking” gives also a dark colour to the agglomerated cork, like chocolate. In the production of steam is used biomass what makes it truly ecological production and without waste, 95% energy self-sufficient. This material offers so many advantages, because in addition to being an excellent thermic, acoustic insulation and antivibration, is also a CO2 sink playing a key role in the environment.
Nature is perfect with all the natural imperfections. So differences of colour and tonality can happen due to common changes in the natural materials. Few cork granules may be released as time goes by due to the natural characteristics of the cork. The product is handmade so final dimensions may vary slightly. All these changes and variations are not considered defects.
