Our EconomyPlate™ carbon fiber balsa core laminate offers a very high strength and stiffness to weight ratio. End grain balsa provides exceptionally high shear, tensile and compressive strengths. Balsa is also a renewable resource, with typical balsa trees maturing to 90 feet in seven years. The lay-up design is 0°/90° orientation of carbon fiber on each side of a 3.5mm Balsa core center. Two face sheet thickness options of .010" or .030" are available. Face sheet finish is texture on both sides for bonding to other surfaces.
Two free linear saw cuts with full sheet purchase. Contact us for details.
