End-Grain Balsa Wood Core: BALSASUD Core

Has remarkable physical properties, starting with its outstanding strength-to-weight ratios (high shear and compression strength). BALSASUD Core is approved by DNV GL and Lloyd's Register.

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 is highly chemical resistant (including styrene).

Our balsa wood core can also come with the latest coating technologies to reduce resin absorption, increase bonding properties and protect it from environmental constraints.

All these advantages makes balsa an ideal core material in sandwich construction. Balsa is also an all-natural product and a renewable resource. Our balsa core comes from Ecuador.


CoreLite's PVC Foam Board: CoreLite Board

A high-quality, but cost-effective closed-cell PVC foam specially formulated to provide high physical properties and be recyclable. Engineered for easy workability, weatherproof and insulation properties, and excellent fire behavior. It is characterized for its phenomenal screw retention and amazing resistance to moisture; it will not rot, mold or mildew. It is also compatible with multiple resins and adhesives. 


CoreLite Board is a stand alone product and can be used without skins as a replacement for wood and plywood. CoreLite Board is 27% lighter than Plywood.


This PVC foam board has excellent fastener pullout strength and high flexural strength and stiffness. It is also highly resistant to chemicals and temperature changes.

It was engineered to meet the physical demands needed in transoms, attachment points, floors, bulkheads, stringers, local reinforcements, molds, and tooling.


Our two products have been designed to provide our customers with VALUE by providing only the Best Quality, Cost-Effectiveness and Technical Support.


CoreLite's PET Foam Core: CoreLite PET

Is a cost-effective, closed-cell PET foam specially formulated to provide high mechanical properties. It is a 100% recyclable polymer foam with excellent performance. Engineered to meet the physical demands needed in high performance applications, including carrying static and dynamic loads. CoreLite PET can be used as a replacement for PVC and Honeycomb. It possesses excellent laminate-to-core bonding adhesion.


Resistance to fatigue is superior, as well as its chemically stability and UV resistance. Water absorption is minimal. Our CoreLite PET can handle processing temperatures up to 150 °C (302 °F) .
During high temperature processing it is thermally stable and no outgassing or expansion after post- cure occurs. In the event of fire, no toxic gases are generated. 


CoreLite's PVC Foam Core: CoreLite PVC

CoreLite PVC is a universal closed-cell, cross-linked polymer PVC foam formulated for durability, strength, and high processing temperatures. It is compatible with multiple resins and adhesives.

It has a very low water absorption rate and excellent chemical resistance. Ideal for many lightweight composite applications.
