  • BALTEK SB is a core material produced from select kiln-dried balsa wood in the endgrain configuration
    • When balsa wood is cut perpendicular to the grain direction it has optimum physical properties due to its honeycomb-like cell structure
  • BALTEK has the following properties:
    • Extremely low specific weight
    • High mechanical rigidity and stiffness
    • Reduced use of raw materials
  • Applications: Ship and boat construction (hull, decks, bulkheads, superstructures, interior fittings)
  • Applications: Compatible with polyester, vinylester or epoxy resins and glass, DuPont™ KEVLAR® or carbon fibers
  • Sandwich structures with balsa result in a particularly lightweight and sturdy end product
  • Depending on processing and in combination with other layers, BALTEK®core material has other interesting properties:
    • Excellent flexural,bond & shear strengths
    • High strength-to-weight ratio
    • Requires less resin to wet out than cellular foam cores
    • Pre-wetting not necessary
    • Certified & approved for marine use
    • Includes fiberglass scrim for contour ability
    • High specific stiffness and rigidity
    • High impact resistance
    • Excellent fire behavior
    • Excellent moisture resistance
    • Excellent fatigue resistance
    • Excellent sound absorption and thermal insulation
    • Operating temperature from -212° C to+163° C
  • Material:
    • Balsa is a universal core material due to the excellent styrene and chemical resistance as well as the neutral behavior in terms of temperature fluctuations
    • Balsa can be processed with all known resin systems and processes and has excellent laminate adhesion properties
    • BALTEK balsa wood is grown on their own plantations in Ecuador; it is not obtained from the deforestation of the rain forest
      • Ecological, sustainable product, made of 100% plantation wood

Other Applications:

  • Rail and road vehicles (floor, side and roof panels, front and side covering, interior fittings)
  • Wind energy plants (rotor blades,covers for rotor hubs, casings and generators)
  • Aerospace (floor plates, galley parts, interior fittings, transport pallets, containers, and structural parts of sporting aircraft)
  • Military applications(transport pallets, containers, shelters, boats)
  • Industrial components (containers, covers, tanks, sports equipment [skis, snowboards,kayaks])
