BalCore™ is the brand name of balsa wood. According to application and product performance, it has three series by weight: light type, standard type and heavy type, which serve to dierent requirements from customers. Balsa wood grows in the area nearby equator of north and south latitude between 0 to 5 degrees, the wood from seedlings to adult trees take a period at 4-6 years, which is a continuously renewable resource. Balsa mainly grows in Ecuador and its surrounding areas (more than 90% world consumption from here). This tree regeneration are very strong, with 5 to 6 years, it can become a tree with 30cm diameter and 18 to 25M height.Balsa is a structural core materials made by the 'end-grain' BALSA , including a process of drying、sterilization、joint、slicing and surface treatment., its unique en-grain structure gives it excellent shear resistance and compressive properties. Meanwhile, balsa has superior resistance of impact, fatigue, and high temperature, soundproof and excellent FST performance. The BALSA sandwich has a higher panel bond strength With unique surface coating which shall prevent the immersion of the resin into wood. This product is used for Hand Lay-up、Vacuum Infusion、L-RTM and Pre-preg process in mould and wind energy area.
◎High compress and shear strength resistance
◎High impact and fatigue resistance.
◎Better re resistance、good sound and thermal insulation
◎Wide application area covering wind energy, marine,transportation, military engineering etc.
◎Applicable for many process: hand lay-up, vacuum bagging,L-RTM etc.
◎Special surface coating, low resin absorption, higher bindingstrength and tearing strength.
