PET Foam & Core Materials Balsa Wood - Description
This material reflects its foam properties: air bubbles help expand volume without the penalty of added weight. Specifically, this type of product is composed of closed cells filled with 50-96% air. The foams give your sandwich structures outstanding strength, excellent stiffness and minimal weight – with this material sandwich structures can be more than 50% lighter.
This renewable material is the only structural core material made of a natural, renewable resource that combines various special features: fast growth, low to medium density, and unique weight-specific mechanical properties. The company owns and manages through its forest companies several thousand hectares of certified balsa wood plantations in Ecuador and Papua New Guinea.
