Cork laser cutting & cork engraving

What is cork sheet?

Cork, sourced from the specialized cork oak tree, is the foundation for a wide range of versatile cork products. Its cellular structure, resembling honeycombs, holds resin and tannin chemicals, delivering remarkable features like elasticity, sealing ability, thermal and sound insulation, electrical insulation, and resistance to friction.


With its lightweight nature, pleasant touch, non-toxic composition, and fire-resistant properties, cork stands unmatched among wooden alternatives.


In the realm of laser processing, Cork laser cutting shines bright. Laser technology delicately engraves intricate designs onto cork surfaces in the laser machine, producing visually captivating masterpieces.

Features of cork

Unlike other wood species that are prone to decay and mold when exposed to the elements, the cork tree doesn’t possess any mystical properties that set it apart from other types of wood.


However, cork does require a specific treatment method that involves exposure to wind, rain, and air for more than six months. Following a three-week indoor storage period and a boiling water tank treatment at 100°C, the cork is ready for further processing into a wide range of commonly used cork products.
