Expanko: Regenerative Flooring

Expanko Cork FlooringExpanko makes flooring out of two regenerative materials: cork and rubber. They also make a unique product which combines both cork and rubber, called XCR3, an example of which is pictured here.

To produce cork flooring, virgin cork bark and cork waste from the manufacturing of other cork products is recycled and ground into small granules. The granules are baked in molds at varying temperatures, allowing shade variations, from light to dark, in the finished tile product.

The rubber used in the flooring is a blend of recycled tires, post industrial waste rubber and virgin rubber.
