Cortical Gaskets and their correct application.

Safe glass transportation is always a problem for business connected with glass. The risk of breaking the glass, or even more more expensive glazed windows increases with the size of the structure (or a single sheet of glass and glazing). To insure yourself against the risks you should use high-quality protection. One element of glass protection is a cork gasket, which is used for this purpose for decades.

Due to cortical pads (cork or, as they usually called "cork") you can put several layers of glass and move this pile being sure that it will be delivered intact. Cork is not only a damping material, but it also prevents the glasses from sliding. Under the weight of the glass a cork is tightly sealed so glass pile is very firm and no glass can move or slide. In fact, this "layered cake" of glass becomes one solid item because of cork gaskets between the layers. It is necessary to take into account the frequency of placement of pads, to ensure maximum reliability. Furthermore, different sheets need different frequency and density of cork gaskets. You can get more information from our specialists.

Material of cortical gaskets (spacers)

Cork is an environmentally friendly material. Cork is produced using solid and thick sheets of bark of the cork oak, without visible defects and flaws. Obtained after cutting cork comes to automatic sorting lines. The lower porosity of the cork – the higher its grade.
