Cork underlayment by Forna is produced using European grade 100% Polyurethane binders. These binders are VOC free and formaldehyde free. Cork granule sizes 1-3 are used in combination with a small amount of the polyurethane adhesive, heat and pressure to create a product designed for loose or bonded installation underneath solid hardwood, bamboo or engineered hardwood. Ceramic tiles can be mortared to 6mm (or thicker) cork underlayment sheets – so long as the cork underlayment is bonded to the subfloor and then sealed in cement prior to the tiles being mortared in place.
Wood, Laminate, carpet and ceramic floors absorb out body heat, thus the floors have a colder feel. Classic synthetic foams do not provide thermal insulation.

Floating floors such as cork, laminate or vinyl planking do well when with cork underlayment is floated as well. Cork underlay sheets are not to be used in place of a vapour barrier. Like any wood product, cork underlay requires the use of vapour barrier when installed directly over cement or below grade.
