Unique flooring solution offers the comfort of cork

The Floor and Wall Coverings Business Unit (BU) is the world leader in the production and distribution of cork floor and wall coverings. It operates in over 70 countries and is internationally renowned for the quality and innovation of its products. By combining traditional production methods with cutting-edge technology, Amorim Revestimentos develops unique products whose differentiation is based on the use of a unique material - cork - with proven environmental benefits and whose characteristics cannot be matched by scientifically engineered products.

The main brands of this Business Unit are Wicanders – the premium brand - Corklife and Cortex.

Wicanders' history dates back to 1868. Over its history the brand has developed innovative solutions that combine cutting-edge technology with the incredible natural properties of cork. The result is floor and wall coverings that adapt to the different rhythms of everyday life in residential and commercial spaces, ready for all occasions and providing an unrivalled level of comfort.

The most recent innovations developed by this BU include the Hydrocork collection - the first waterproof cork-based flooring solution. Due to its thinness and easy installation, thanks to the new Pressfit compression system, this new flooring solution is truly ground-breaking and represents a turning point in cork-based floors. Cork’s unique functionality, sustainability and other benefits are now complemented by the strengths of water resistance, in a flooring solution that is ideal for renovation projects.


Using Corktech technology - a multi-layered cork-based structure – Wicanders’ flooring solutions guarantee four important benefits:

  • silence (reduces walking sound by up to 53%)
  • natural thermal insulation (due to cork’s cellular structure, which retains temperature for longer)
  • walking comfort (cork offers the perfect balance between surfaces that are too rigid or too soft)
  • impact resistance (due to cork’s natural shock absorption capacity)


With a portfolio that combines several solutions, the Floor and Wall Coverings Business Unit (BU)’s products combine the unique properties of cork with differentiated visuals, such as wood or stone, through incorporation of state-of-the-art technologies. Technologies such as digital printing make it possible to replicate any type of visual in cork with an unprecedented level of realism.




The natural beauty of cork is the starting point for these authentic visuals, in a classic or contemporary style, available in different tonalities and decorative patterns.
