Glue down cork tiles

Glue down cork tiles are normally made up of 100% cork with a factory finish. If there is a pattern, it is normally a cork-on-cork veneer (cork glued to cork). The finish may have a colour or stain added to cork flooring. The whole thing is then factory finished with several layers of urethane, acrylic, or polyurethane. These finishes are most often water based or waterborne formulas – but not always. When cork tiles glued into place, these cork tiles will then need to be site finished to achieve the final finish – which is water proof. For this reason a glue down installation is the proper installation in bathrooms, laundry rooms and entranceways. A kitchen floor can also benefit from a cork tiles flooring installation where the owner is greatly concerned with water permeability. Some producers will offer a floating floor “plank” (with High Density Fibreboard) that can be glued in place. This is a product that should not be confused with the 100% cork tiles; these glue in place planks cannot be installed in wet areas and many of them are finished in a ceramic bead or aluminum oxide “high wear” finish that cannot be site finished
