Opus Floors launches Naturcork – Floor Covering News
Calgary, AB, Canada—Opus Floors introduces Naturcork—the first 24 x 36.8mm digitally printed, bonded cork tile. With this introduction of digital printing technology on cork tiles, the market is no longer limited to the expected appearance of a cork floor, which the company believes opens the door to unrealized potential.
“Opus Floors Canada presented Naturcork to independent flooring retailers in the United States, with an overwhelming response,” said Vern Verkley, president of Opus Floors Canada. “Dealers are so excited that they are inventing innovative new ways of merchandising, while placing Naturcork at the center of their showroom.”
According to the company, some of Naturcork’s highlights include:
- 24 x 36.8mm thick solid cork tiles.
- Water repellent
- kid friendly
- 1000 DPI print resolution
- 16 tile repetition and natural cork properties that make each tile unique
- Lifetime Residential/10 Years Commercial Warranty
- Carbon negative product
The product has been inventoried in the East and West for the United States and Canada and features 4th generation finishing technology. This makes these primed cork floor tiles “best in class” performers for commercial and residential applications such as; kitchens, bathrooms and basements, the company said. A seal coat or field-applied finish is also possible, making these floors optimal for commercial, institutional and hospitality applications, the company says.
