Our state-of-the-art kilns enables our excellent time-to-kiln practices so our balsa wood core comes with no drying defects and the correct moisture content, optimizing our process and overall quality.

The result is balsa core that will not rot or delaminate when used properly.

 It has remarkable physical properties, starting with its outstanding strength-to-weight ratios (high shear and compression strength).
Additionally, balsa wood is easy to bond when using any type of resin or adhesive. Balsa also serves as a natural insulator, fire retardant and noise reduction material. Working with balsa is easy as it can handle changes in temperature and high chemical resistance (including styrene).
All these advantages make our balsa an ideal core material in sandwich construction. Balsa is also an all-natural product and a renewable resource.
