Composite Core Materials
MARINE-GRADE, SCORED, END-GRAIN BALSA CORE

Baltek® or Icore® Brands

 

Balsa Core is made from 1” x 2”end-grain, balsa wood blocks in 3/8”, 1/2”, 3/4”, and 1" thicknesses held together by a lightweight fiberglass scrim applied to one side. The resulting 2’ x 4’ sheet of end-grain blocks can then be handled and draped like a fabric into highly contoured shapes, such as boat hulls and decks, or laid flat into panels. Sandwiching balsa in between fiberglass laminations creates an extremely stiff, high strength composite with low additional weight. Balsa is the strongest of the lightweight core materials used in marine construction.
