End Grain Balsa
DuFLEX / Balsa panels are available with standard 150kg/m3 or select grade "SuperLite" 100 kg/m3 end grain balsa cores. The balsa is plantation grown and kiln-dried and processed in an "end-grain" configuration
The properties of end grain balsa make it ideal as a core for sandwich construction. It has extremely high strength and stiffness-to -weight ratios, and achieves an excellent bond with all types of resins and adhesives.
End grain balsa also has excellent fire performance, good sound & thermal insulation, and high impact strength, making it an excellent choice as a core for high performance composite panels.
Typical applications include marine hulls, decks, superstructures and interiors; road and rail floors, walls, roof & body panels, front end and side skirts: aircraft floor panels, galley parts, cargo pallets, containers and interior partitions: industrial tooling, tanks, concrete forms and fascia panels.
