End-Grain Balsa Core

Nature's Wonder-Wood For Composite Laminates

End-grain balsa wood is a structural core with ideal properties for sandwich construction. It is compatible with all types of manufacturing processes from wet lamination to pre-preg construction.

 

Balsa is not affected by styrene or long resin gel times making it well suited for infusion applications. You can purchase rigid balsa sheets or contour-cut with scrim as well as a variety of specialty cuts.

 

Balsa is also available with a coating that minimizes resin absorption increasing bond strength and maximizing your weight savings. Today’s balsa core is available with controlled density (5lb/ft^3 - 18lb/ft^3) for making more precision parts.

 

Balsa is an economical solution to higher priced foam cores.
