The Creation of Expanded Cork Granules: A Zero Waste Journey
The process is ecologically sound. Initially, we subject natural cork grains to extreme heat in special molds. During this heating phase, the cork fragments swell – similar to how popcorn pops. This is the stage where the natural material enhances its qualities beyond other materials or even conventional cork forms. In making expanded cork, the material emits a resin (suberin) which organically unites all the particles. Expanded cork granules are crafted using leftovers from the production of expanded cork insulation boards.
