What is Cork Spray?

Unlike painting, the durability of the system only fades 1% annually vs. traditional paint which fades 10% annually.

The Cork Shield material can be used for many applications including:

  • Alternative to stucco top coat can be applied to new builds, or existing stucco
  • Directly on brick instead of paint, plaster or crepi
  • Directly on cement layer to make it aesthetically tighter
  • Siding and siding renovations
  • Timber frame
  • Insulation for tanks, silos and containers
  • Various roof and metal building applications
  • Protect against moisture and condensation
  • Can be applied to various types of material including wood, concrete, metal, cement and brick.

Our manufacturer ensures the conformity of the use of continuous spray coating for external use, through cork emulsion on walls and coverings for buildings with the aim to adequately meet the necessary requirements of the Technical Code for Construction.
