Balsa Core has a honeycomb-like cell structure that’s configured into end-grain panels that can provide optimal properties including high compressive, flexural and shear strength along with stiffness. Balsa is a cost effective, natural material that is produced in a variety of densities that can be tailored to specific applications. It is widely used in the production of boats, wind turbine blades, transportation and structural composite panels.

Available in 2' x 4' sheets of individual small blocks which are bonded to a light scrim fabric that holds the blocks together while laminating. Sheets of this core will conform to practically any simple curve and most gradual compound curves.
