CORE MATERIALS

BALSA

The properties of balsa make it ideal as a core for sandwich construction. It has an extremely high strength and stiffness to weight ratio, and achieves an excellent bond with all types of resins and adhesives. It is compatible with a variety of manufacturing processes and is resistant to temperature changes, exposure to fire or chemicals such as styrene. It is an ideal core material for an extensive range of applications. It is also a renewable resource.

BANOVA PLY is a lightweight plywood consisting of adhesively bonded balsa veneers. Owing to the varying panel thicknesses, processing variants and its combination with different facings, it is extremely versatile in use. Besides being lightweight and environmentally compatible, BANOVA PLY offers the possibility of using existing woodworking tools as well as connecting techniques.

BANOVA FLEX is a highly flexible bending plywood used for curved components. In conjunction with thin facings, small radius can be created with only one layer of BANOVA FLEX, where traditional bending plywood would require two or more layers. Besides being lightweight and environmentally compatible, BANOVA FLEX offers the possibility of using existing woodworking tools as well as established connecting and bonding techniques.
