These panels provide acoustic insulation, anti-vibration, and thermal insulation.
The Jelinek Cork acoustic panels are made from cork harvested from oak trees. There is no adhesive binder used in the production of these panels. They are 100% natural. Granulated cork is "baked" in molds which causes natural resins in cork to bind to each other. This baking process causes the color to turn a dark brown. The cork is further shaped into 9.5 inch individual 3 dimensional squares designed with acoustics in mind. The natural color is a dark neutral between brown and black. Package of 9 pieces.
These panels insulate but do not lock in moisture. Unlike most synthetic (plastic and rubber) acoustic panels that can trap moisture between the wall and the panel and cause unexposed mildew or mold, these panels are breathable allowing moisture to naturally evaporate.
Panels are adhered to your wall using contact adhesive (purchased separately). Contact adhesive (also called Contact Cement) is applied to the reverse of the tile as well as to the wall area using a brush. The adhesive is allowed to dry on both surfaces. When dry, the tile is carefully positioned on the wall and pressed against the wall forming a permanent bond.
