What is Thermal CorkShield?
Vipeq’s Thermal CorkShield is an environmentally friendly, insulating spray product derived from cork. Our non-invasive solution insulates your home from the exterior, creating a thermal barrier on the applied surface and keeping your home or office temperature regulated. By preventing heat and cold from entering, we help you save energy. Cork not only improves the energy performance of your home, but the exterior texture and colour will naturally beautify the outside of your property for years to come.
A sustainable, naturally renewing product
Many modern construction products deplete the earth’s natural resources or negatively impact our health.
Cork is a renewable, eco-friendly and resource. Cork bark grows very thick and abundantly, and naturally regrows when harvested. During the extraction process the tree releases large amounts of oxygen, benefiting the air we breathe. No trees are cut down to make our product.
The process of extraction, manufacturing, and application of Thermal CorkShield is done without any environmental impact.

The Benefits of Thermal CorkShield
Cork slows the spread of flames without releasing toxic gases during combustion. It is Class B fire rated.
The Cork’s volume is made up of 88% air. This translates to a low density, between 0.12 and 0.24 Litres/2.2 kilogram, reducing structural concerns.
The properties in cork will keep the surface of your home or building cooler in the summer and warmer in the winter. This creates a Thermal Break reducing your energy bills.
Our cork will make your home or building quieter by absorbing sound. This is why sound studios still use cork to help prevent sound reverberation.
Our product has elastic properties that allow it to expand and contract as needed. Unlike stucco and paint, Thermal CorkShield will not chip or crack.
High Friction Coefficient
The cork is lined with micro suction cups that permit it to adhere to the surface without sliding.
Cork is an impermeable product, meaning liquids or gases cannot pass through it. Its resistance to moisture enables it to age without deteriorating.
Due to our product’s flexibility it absorbs impact to protect any surface it is applied to. This will extend the life of your property.
During the trimming of the bark, the cork tree releases large amounts of oxygen, replenishing the air we breathe.
