BALTEK® VBC is a structural core material based on balsa wood veneer from 100% FSC® certified plantations (FSC-C100270). Its unique mechanical properties are obtained through the optimum alignment of various veneer layers and the integration of other materials. The material is lightweight and sustainable as a matter of course - as it is for all members of the family of BALTEK® products.

New sandwich core made using lightweight balsa veneers.

  • Mechanical properties and failure mode can be tailored based on veneer orientations: [0/90], [+45/-45], [0/90/+45/-45], etc.
  • Other products such as foam or flax fibers may be incorporated.
