Sandwich structures with balsa result in a particularly lightweight and sturdy end product. As balsa wood is cut perpendicular to the grain direction it has optimum physical properties due to its honeycomb-like cell structure.

Depending on processing and in combination with other layers, balsa as core material offers the following specific properties:

  • High specific stiffness and rigidity
  • High impact resistance
  • Excellent moisture resistance
  • Operating temperature from -212° C to +163° C
  • Ecological, sustainable product, made of 100% plantation wood
  • Excellent sound absorption and thermal insulation
