    • INSTITUTO SUPERIOR DE ENTRE O DOURO E VOUGA INGLÊS Cork in AerospaceCork Properties: Natural product, recyclable and biodegradable; Very light; Elastic, compressible and impermeable; An efficient insulator for acoustics, heat and mechanical vibration; Highly resistant to wear and tear.Why Cork in Aerospace?There is a granulated type (Cork Composition), which is produced especially for usein NASA rockets. This material is used for lining the engines and acts as an insulatingagent against the high temperatures that occur in this area. This is only possiblethanks to the unique characteristics of cork. Even when subjected to hightemperatures and using its insulation properties, cork can catch fire. It presents,however, a rare resistance to flame formation.The use of this material proves that cork is not, contrary to widely held belief, anantiquated and obsolete raw material, but is rather in the vanguard of technologybeing used in the application of more innovative and advanced applications thancurrently exist.
