Why are EcoPro tailpads so environmentally friendly and durable?
We introduce the ecoPro® Cork trcation pad, the most environmentally friendly flu pad in the world.
Made from 100% cork agglomerate.
Cork is 100% natural, elastic, impermeable, lightweight, biodegradable, reusable and recyclable.
"CORK IS ONE OF THE MOST VERSATILE MATERIALS IN THE WORLD."
The cork oak is the only tree whose bark regenerates for about 250 years in the course of its life and can be harvested about 15 times.
Produces an enormous amount of oxygen, ensures the retention and storage of over 20 million tonnes of CO2.
Fights climate change.
Prevents the deterioration of soil quality.
Regulates the water cycle.
The cork forest provides habitat for endangered species such as the Iberian eagle and the Iberian lynx.
The cork industry is considered a CO2-neutral energy source, as more than 60% of the energy demand is covered by the cogeneration of cork dust into electrical energy.
The cork used for the production of cork agglomerate comes from different sources:
From the first and second bark which is stripped off, from trees which are not suitable for cork production and from the remains, chips, pieces and waste from other cork industries.
After being ground together, this granulate is the raw material for the production of cork agglomerates.
From the agglomeration of these cork granules, composite agglomerates are produced by an agglutination process using pressure, heat and a binder.
Developed entirely from cork agglomerate, the Cork Traction Pad combines traction, comfort and durability
By making the cork traction pad in one solid piece, we ensure greater strength and increased durability.
The EcoPro©UniBody technology offers a greater and stronger grip on the surfboard, the result is a flat pad.
TRACTION AND COMFORT
We design a unique tread pattern that combines powerful traction and comfort.
Cork is a fabric, and to get the best out of its natural material, we have developed the Cork Traction Pad for use in wet Environments.
