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 .5" 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.
