Galvanize green is an authorized distributer of Vipeq, we believe this product is the best green energy product on the market. we believe this because cork has an abundance of great properties including.
- Fire retarded
Noncombustible does not propagate flames nor does it release incandescent particles.
Designed to reduce or minimize the possibility of an allergic response, as by containing relatively few or no potentially irritating substances
Capable of being bent, usually without breaking; easily bent
Rendered impervious to water
- Mildew resistant
Resistant to the growth of mildew
- Acoustic insulator
It reduces noise between 8 and 12 decibels
- Thermal insulator
Its natural function is to protect the tree that it comes from. Its temperature range of 32° to 85° F. provides a resistance to heat 30 times higher than concrete thanks to its alveolar structure, low water content, and lack of conductivity of its compounds.
Since 88% of its volume is air; this translates to a low density, between 0.12 and 0.24 Quarts/Lb.
- Trees are never cut down
- At the Age of 40-50 cork trees are harvest
- Bark regenerates every 8 to 9 Years
- Lengthening life of tree up to 200-500 years
- During the extraction process it Release large amounts of oxygen
The process of extraction, manufacture, and application of the cork material is done
without any environmental impact.
- Creating a Thermal Barrier
- Never increases over 86 degrees Fahrenheit and never freezes
- Over 35% heat or cold is lost through exterior walls
- Over 25% heat or cold is lost through the roof
- Reduces Energy Usage
