Our gorgeous all-natural press-filled cork is not synthetic cork. It is top grade natural cork that has had the pores filled with cork dust and a special binder. This fills any of the natural voids in the cork leaving a beautiful smooth surface. An added benefit is that the cork bends easily.
Tech cork is a high-quality rubberized composite cork formulated to be more resistant with a higher recuperation rate after compression.
As opposed to the "shive cut" sheet cork, cross-grain cork is sliced with the grain (pores). Cross-grain cork makes the finest looking feet corks, and is preferred by some technicians that like to cut their own cork pads.
A great way to get started with a stock of sheet cork. One each of 1/64", 1/32", and 3/32" (2" x 4" sheet) and one each of 1/16" and 3/64" (4" x 4" sheet).
Composition cork is very economical. While not as nice as tech cork or natural cork for most applications, it has many uses around the shop.
