Among the many articles made ironi  cork waste is the familiar cork grip i'oi  1 bicycle handles. By a secret process  j the -waste is pressed into tho required  i ihape, and. strange to hay, tho grips thus  I  I' made are stronger - and .uiore durable 1  than those manufactured from cork  wood, -although the latter gives a much  imoother finish. Cork slabs ior insulating purposes, life preservers, cork solci  and insoles and penholders aro also  made from cork waste. It is very largely used for a filler in the lin'-ag of cold  Itorage and ice houses, sim? cork ia a  vionconductor of heat.

The waste sometimes takes the place of  asbestus in covering steam pipes.    Both  cork wood and waste make a very desirable handle or grip for fish  poles,  which is a comparatively recent idea.
