"After extensive market research, cork was found to be the best material to apply in this type of commercial refrigeration chassis. It simplifies the production process, which has hitherto been too complex, thereby delivering associated savings, and also meets this industry’s technical requirements, with the added value of being ecological. "

Filipe Guimarães, Gröwancork’s Managing Director


The EIC - Easy Insulation Cork solution – is based on a chassis made of expanded cork agglomerate coated with sheet metal that can be applied in refrigeration equipment, as an ecological alternative to injected polyurethane.

Due to its composition, EIC offers many advantages over standard products, especially in environmental terms, since the type of cork used is rigorously 100% natural, recyclable, doesn’t require refrigeration equipment producers to invest in moulds (necessary for injection procedures), and maintains the same technical and dimensional characteristics over several decades - contrary to standard insulation solutions used. The latter characteristic means that Gröwancork’s solutions offer energy gains in comparison with traditional insulation solutions, which will become more relevant year after year.

The Grõwancork range aims to cover the entire commercial refrigeration industry, i.e. large-scale manufacturers of heated and refrigerated display cases, murals and semi-murals, refrigerated and heated display cabinets, refrigeration and ventilation plants, especially in the HORECA channel, and large-scale and medium-scale food distribution outlets.

Gröwancork already complies with the new EU Regulation (EU No. 517/2014), which aims to protect the environment by reducing emissions of fluorinated greenhouse gases, according to which all foams containing HFCs with a GWP of 150 or greater shall be prohibited from January 1, 2023 onwards.
