3.  Product Description
Wine Cork Tiles are the trade name of cork tiles used as an interior building material that are made from recycled cork. Wine Cork Tiles are made by compression molding a mixture of whole corks, granulated cork and a food grade polyurethane binder into a solid block. The block is then sliced into sheets. Sheets can be as thin as 1.2 mm (0.047") for veneer or as thick as 190 mm (< 7.5"). Wine Cork Veneer can be laminated to a substrate of granulated cork for the full resiliency of cork but at a lower cost. Each laminated Wine Cork Tile is sanded on 1 side and edge trimmed to be perfectly square. For full thickness Wine Cork Tiles or sheet, sanding 1 side and edge trimming is an option. See the Wine Cork Tile Price List for details.

4.  Applications
Wine Cork Tiles are ideal for flooring, paneling, counter & table tops, veneer for furniture and fixtures and for specialty products.

5. Installation 
Any number of adhesives for wood will adhere Wine Cork Tiles to a wood substrate. A triple chip saw blade or a combination up & down spiral router bit is recommended for the best cuts.
