The 200 Sq Foot cork roll we will ship to you is 48 inches wide and 50 feet long. You can order any combination of rolls you need. We have a few configurations of R60 all made in the same factory and the same thickness; the only difference is size of the rolls
- Our Premium Cork underlayment is 1/4 inch (6mm = 0.236 inches) thick and is sold in full rolls in various sizes
- R-Value = 0.80 for 1/4" thickness or 3.10 per inch
- Indoor use only
- Recommended for tile or stone installations, thinset directly over the heating element on top of cork just like normal subfloor.
- Not recommended for shower floors or outdoor use
- Not recommended to be covered with leveler under engineered hardwood floors. If used with Wood flooring, minimum leveler thickness should be 3/8 to 1/2 inch to prevent cracking
Manufactured by Amorim Industrial Solutions, the pioneer of cork underlayment for sound control, thermal insulation and protection against stress cracks, our products have been in use since the 1980's.
The R60 (60 designates 6.0 mm thick)) is a thermal barrier as well as an acoustical barrier and will also prevent stress cracks in the tile floor. With the highest density on the market for any cork underlayment making it a very durable product, R60 will not "give" causing cracks to form. It is Safe, tested, and designed for use under tile floors. Inferior cork products are often from a different species of Cork and made in China and require use of epoxy grout; but NOT AcoutiCORK R60.
The cork is adhered to the clean & dry concrete slab using either Thinset Mortar (preferred & best method - the same thinset used to install the tile) or an approved adhesive (see instructions) With an R-Value of 3.1 per inch the cork acts as a "thermal Break" and slows the heat transfer into a concrete slab sub floor when placed on top of the slab. The heating elements are then installed on TOP of the cork, and secured with tape or glue and then covered with thinset mortar while installing your tile or stone floor. Cork Insulating underlay cannot be used in a shower floor or outdoors.
Our Cork is specifically designed and engineered for use under tile or stone floors. It's tested and there are hundreds of millions of Square feet installed in successful installations worldwide. Why risk using an inferior cork to save a few dollars? Choose R-60 from Warm Your Floor.
