Thermal-Acoustic Insulation High-Tech Industrial Systems, Panels and Finishes for Acoustic and Bioclimatic Efficiency in Eco Building 100% Italian - Made in Italy 100% Pure Blond Cork in different versions, also with ICEA (Ethical and Environmental Certification Institute) certification Technology and Industrial Plants in Sardinia EDISUGHERO 100% Italian Cork® is the First in the World in Raw Cork with Vegetable Based Binders 100% Raw No Toasting No Combustions Reusable
VEGETABLE BASED 100% RAW 100% ITALIAN
EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK, guaranteed 100% Italian, is the first raw panel in the world with vegetable based binders, to avoid volatile compounds in building and to achieve low energy input production processes.
RENEWABLE AND ZERO EMISSIONS FROM COMBUSTION
One hectare of cork oak captures 15 tons of CO2.
EDISUGHERO Italian Cork 100% raw does not adulterate the forest; rather, it preserves and valorises its richness and confers its properties to buildings. EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK is a living material. It is naturally raw, so its production does not include any hot working processes, unlike expanded toasted cork, produced at high temperatures through an energy-intensive combustion process that results in CO2 emissions
ITS THERMAL, ACOUSTIC AND HYGROMETRIC POWER IS EXTREMELY HIGH
EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK
is one of the best insulation products in its market section, because of its insulation properties. It is available in several versions, densities and thicknesses, and in modules ready for specific needs
NO TREE CUTTING AND NO VULNERABILITY TO INSECT AND RODENT ATTACKS
Unlike wood fibre and other insulation products, EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK does not need any tree cutting, because it uses the outer bark of oaks, which is harvested leaving the forest intact. EDISUGHERO Italian Cork undergoes no insect repellent treatments; in fact, unlike wood fibre, oak cork is naturally repellent and not vulnerable .
TOP REDUCTION OF THERMAL DISPERSION
TOP SPECIFIC HEAT CAPACITY: HIGHER THAN IN EXPANDED CORKS
Using the 8 centimetres EDICORK - EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK line improves thermal performance by 75%, reducing energy dispersion by 75%. This is possible thanks to the high insulation properties of EDICORK (higher than those of wood fibre), together with its specific heat capacity of 2100 J/kgK, the highest among insulation materials and equal to wood. This value is lower in expanded cooked and/or toasted corks (around 1900 J/kgK), and even lower in energy-intensive insulation materials like rock wool and petrochemical insulation materials (EPS, polystyrene, Styrofoam, polyurethane and polyester), which have a much lower specific heat capacity (1500-900 J/kgK).
100% RAW CORK IS PERFECT IN EVERY CONDITION
The cellular structure of EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK 100% raw is able to best adapt its insulation power, just like the tree bark even in the case of sudden climatic variations. In fact, natural and raw, it keeps the botanical memory of the tree intact. In other insulation products, this memory is partly limited and adulterated because of high temperatures which erase the original vegetable structure of the tree, as shown by the specific heat capacity of cooked/toasted cork, 1900 J/kgK; (EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK 2100 J/kgK).
LIVING CORK 100% HEALTHY, ITALIAN AND FROM LOCAL RAW MATERIALS IN SARDINIA
The raw materials for EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK come from oak forests in Sardinia, the greenest of the Italian regions and the one with the largest forest area which produces 90% of Italian cork. This is why, in Sardinia, EDISUGHERO produces the cork entirely from local sources and with local partners: from the harvesting/supply of local Quercus Suber, to its raw industrial processing (Edizero Technology).
TOP SCORE IN PUBLIC PROCUREMENT
All the products of the line EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK have the credits requested by the CAM in the decrees passed by the Italian Ministry of the Environment and the Protection of the Land and Sea and for the Green Public Procurement (GPP), mandatory under Art. 34 of the Legislative Decree 50/2016, "Code of Public Procurement", which entail the adoption of the "Minimum Environmental Criteria" (CAM). The series EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK includes the panel R-EDICORK 180 R, which has the top ICEA (Ethical and Environmental Certification Institute) Ethical and Environmental certification. Among the strictest in the whole world, the ICEA meets the credits for the internationally recognised LEED (Leadership in Energy and Enviromental Design), specifically aimed for eco building, and energy and acoustic efficiency. Such certification ensures a higher score in public tenders and contracts, and national and international green public procurements, than the other available insulation materials from fossil and renewable sources.
INDUSTRY 4.0 = NO WASTE OF PUBLIC MONEY
EDISUGHERO ITALIAN CORK stems from the production chains Edizero Architecture for Peace, that are based on know-how interchange, research sharing and recovery of pre-existing industries, and the result of this collaboration leads to innovation and important savings of public money: an authentic industry 4.0 that requires no State support.
