Balsa wood has been around in the composites industry for several decades. It is used in a variety of applications and industries, including wind turbine blades, boat building, rail, aerospace, automotive, as well as several other industrial applications.
With such a versatile material, what are the key features that make balsa wood the right choice of core material for a project?
The standard density of balsa is 9.5lbs/cuft. However, BALSASUD Core is also available in 3 other densities:
• 6.5lb/cuft - Ultra Lite
• 8.25lb/cuft - Wind Grade
• 17.5lb/cuft - Heavy Weight
This provides users, with more choice to choose the right density according to their project's strength and weight requirements.
