Galvanize green is an authorized distributer of Vipeq, we believe this product is the best green energy product on the market. we believe this because cork has an abundance of great properties including.
- Fire retardant- Noncombustible does not propagate flames nor does it release incandescent particles.
- Flexible- capable of being bent, usually without breaking; easily bent
- Mildew resistant – resistant to the growth of mildew
- Thermal insulator – Its natural function is to protect the tree that it comes from. Its temperature range of 32° to 85 ° F. provides a resistance to heat 30 times higher than concrete thanks to its alveolar structure, low water content, and lack of conductivity of its compounds.
- Waterproof – rendered impervious to water
- Hypoallergenic – designed to reduce or minimize the possibility of an allergic response,as by containing relatively few or no potentially irritating substances:
- Acoustic insulator-It reduces noise between 8 and 12 decibels
- Lightweight- Since 88% of its volume is air; this translates to a low density, between 0.12 and 0.24 Quarts/Lb.
1. Eco Friendly
- Trees are never cut down
- At the Age of 40-50 cork trees are harvest
- Bark regenerates every 8 to 9 Years
- Lengthening life of tree up to 200-500 years
- During the extraction process it Release large amounts of oxygen
The process of extraction, manufacture, and application of the cork material is done without any environmental impact.
2. Energy Efficient
- Creating a Thermal Barrier
- Never increases over 86 degrees Fahrenheit and never freezes
- Over 35% heat or cold is lost through exterior walls
- Over 25% heat or cold is lost through the roof
- Reduces Energy Usage
