Corkboard was invented in 1892 mainly for the purpose of insulating cold storage areas in buildings and other locations requiring efficient insulation. It consists of various sizes of cork granules compressed together under a high temperature causing the granules to expand and giving them a dark brown color.
In past decades corkboard has also been used as a decorative item for walls and ceilings. It has the additional property of improving an area’s insulation and sound proofing. We also have available a special grade of corkboard which is ideal for the manufacturing of decorative and hunting decoys.
