The basis of "Langite" is a specially cleaned, winnowed and screened cork, which is finely ground to a uniform size of granule, free from all dirt and foreign matter. From these granules, with the addition of a special binding material of our own invention, the blocks are produced undcr our own process. These blocks, in turn, are sliced into sheets, and out of the sheets are cut gaskets and washers to any shape, size or thickness required. "Langite" has the property of resifting oil, petrol, benzol and other spirits, and is the boot medium on the market for such purposes.
