Why is cork one of the most important materials in spacecraft?
Due to the fact that it is an excellent thermal insulator. When a rocket or spacecraft is launched into space, its structure is subjected to temperatures exceeding one thousand degrees centigrade. The same occurs on the return to Earth, as soon as the spacecraft enters the atmosphere. Just a coating of a cork compound…

5 – Greater safety in sports activities
Artificial turf with a cork infill offers major impact absorption capacity and presents considerable adherence in various atmospheric conditions. These properties reduce the risk of falling or slippage and, consequently, the risk of abrasion.
The global growth in the number of artificial turf pitches has given rise to questions on the impact of this type of system on the environment and user safety, calling for a discussion on the technology and materials used for such infrastructures.
