Primer is needed for any facing materials that you will need to paint later. In the same way, a primer is needed for a cork coverings- because without it, the paint will be poorly absorbed, and hold not so long. Of course, such cork products are rarely used, because the cork coverings themselves look very nice, and the coloring needs technical cork material, and even not always. But any changes in the interior design are possible, and in such cases, a primer is needed. It is worth noting that if you buy a cork for walls immediately lacquered, the primer will not be needed, as far as there will simply not be any positive adhesion effect from it.

Fact No 1

Its Latin name Quercus suber L. cork oak received in 1734 from Swedish botanist-naturalist Karl Linnaeus.

Quercus suber L. – this is the scientific name of the cork oak tree, which is widely distributed in North Africa: Algeria, Morocco, Tunisia, and in Europe: Corsica, France, Italy, Portugal, Sardinia, Sicily, Spain. The Swedish naturalist and botanist Carl Linnaeus gave a name to this evergreen inhabitant of the Mediterranean.

For its Latin name, this remarkable representative of the beech family is obliged to Karl Linnaeus (1707-1778) – a Swedish naturalist, botanist and doctor. Carl Linnaeus (Swedish. Carl Linnaeus) became the founder of modern biological taxonomy, which has built the most successful artificial classification of plants and animals.

He described about 1500 species of plants.
Linnaeus had a passion for plants since childhood. Linnaeus’ father – Niels Linneus was a rural pastor and florist. The garden, organized by his father near the family home in Stenbrokholt, according to Linnaeus “ignited his mind with an unquenchable love to plants. “Linnaeus considered himself as the selected one, called to interpret the plan of the Creator.

The result of this passion was one of his most important works – “Systema naturae ” (“The System of Nature”, 1735). It was a collection of realms of minerals, plants and animals, structured in tables that occupied only 14 pages. Linnaeus distributed the plants to 24 classes, based on the classification of the number, size and location of stamens and pistils.

The new system, created by Linnaeus, proved to be very practical and allowed to define plants even for amateurs, because Linney ordered the terms of descriptive morphology and introduced binary (binominal) nomenclature for simplifying the search and identification of both plants and animals. Later, Karl Linney supplemented his work, and the last lifetime (12th) edition consisted of 4 books and 2335 pages.

The letter L. in the name of Quercus suber L. (oak cork) is the first letter of the surname of the founder of modern biological taxonomy.

Fact No 2

The largest architectural model of the cork - the model of the Colosseum - was made in 1800 by the English artist Richard Duerg (1775-1819)

The size of the cork model of the ancient architectural structure is 43 cm in height, 136 cm in width and 169 cm in length.

This unusual model was part of a collection of cork models of historical buildings of antiquity made by Duburg and exhibited in London in the late 18th and early 19th centuries. The exhibition was designed to educate and entertain a diverse audience.

Duburg also produced theatrical scenery, including special lighting to create drama and movement in his models of the Tiburtina sibyl temple, the Cascade in Tivoli and the eruption of the operating model of Vesuvius. 

Dyubur closed his museum and sold the models at auction in 1819. An unusually beautiful and very large model of the Amphitheater in Rome was also sold at auction in London in 1826.

The collection of architectural models was transferred to the Museum of Science in 1909, when he separated from the Victoria and Albert Museum. If earlier these models were used as teaching aids for students, at the end of the 19th century the interest to the architectural models began to decline and none of the new museums wanted to perform them on the exposition. Some of the models were transferred to regional museums, some were simply destroyed.
