These high quality and highly versatile 3mm Cork sheets, measuring 600mm x 400mm, are one of the most Eco-friendly raw materials on the planet and they also offer a wide range of Design and Technology/Making applications. This material is suitable for laser cutting and laser engraving and as such, it can be cut into intricate shapes very easily and then laser decorated. These cork sheets have an adhesive backing that make it easy to stick them in place wonce they have been cut down to size.

Cork has so many things going for it that it is a must for any making environment. Cork is a waterproof material and is also surprisingly durable. It has good elastic and compression properties and excellent thermal, acoustic and anti-vibration resistance, making it suitable for a wide range of uses.

As well as the obvious cork boards, some other possible uses include; coasters, mouse mats, heat/sound insulation, to decouple a project from a work surface to inhibit the transference of vibration, as a covering to improve the tactile nature of a product, gaskets, a protective layer or bumper, business card, and the list goes on and on.

Cork is considered a slow combustion material in that it will burn if subjected to a persistent ignition source, but it will then burn very slowly and without a flame so it is unlikely to spread. When it does burn, it does so without releasing any toxic fumes.

If you wanted to plan a lesson on raw material sustainability then there is NO other material that is better suited to serving as a positive example. The Cork industry is regarded as being very environmentally friendly as the tree that the bark comes from continues to grow and thrive after the bark is removed. Cork is also 100% recyclable, AND, can be used as an alternative to leather. Not only is cork the best material for a 'cork' for bottles, it also has by far the smallest carbon footprint when compared to any other type of bottle stopper material.

Note:

  • As cork is supplied rolled up it will arrive bowed, if using on a laser cutter these sheets should be strapped/taped to the laser bed before cutting. If using magnets to hold the material flat, ensure that they are not in the path of the laser.
