Mechanical, sound absorption and thermal properties of cork fabric

Abstract

This study focuses on two different kinds of cork leathers that are environment friendly and represent as an important sustainable alternative to leather. The general properties of cork leather have been investigated in this study to highlight their potential use as coated-textile structures. The potential use of cork fabrics as technical textiles is also discussed to promote the use of technical textiles, such as buildtech and automotive textiles. The sound absorption and thermal properties of the cork structures are tested and compared with those of reference lamb leather. It is found that the developed cork-based structures have promising mechanical, thermal, and sound absorption properties for further application.
