Design notes

A brown/tan spotty color.

Typical uses

Coasters and placemats. Bulletin board material and sectional wall covering. Also ideal for certain gasket applications, shipping and spacer pads, protective backing and numerous other industrial, commercial and hobby requirements.

Environmental info

The cork bark can be 'stripped' off allowing new bark to grow in its place without killing or damaging the trees. This makes every tree a renewable source of raw material.

Adhesives, joints & fastenings

Construction adhesives will bond boards well. Follow the adhesive manufacturer's instructions for application processes.

Does anyone know if the stroke/line engraving example shown above on the cork is heavy, medium or light?

The example used a green medium engraving line. You could use green or red and they will come out well on cork.

Is cork cut with a protective paper on top or not? Can designs be washed to remove laser cutting residue?

We try to put the protective paper in the underside of the cork to prevent burning from the laser bed but it does not adhere well. We cannot offer cork cut with the paper on the top due to the fact it does not stick well. I am unsure if the residue can be washed off.
