End Grain Balsa Panels Kiln Dried
BALKORE EG is an industrial structural material produced with kiln dried balsa wood planks glued into blocks and then cross cut sliced into panels of the desired thickness.
This material is available in .25" and .5" thicknesses.
The end grain configuration and the honeycomb cell structure of Balsa wood gives to this material a unique and strong bond to most resins and materials used by the composite materials industry. The resulting sandwich structures have very high ratios of weight to mechanical resistance properties.
The EG panels are compatible with all resins commonly used by the composite industry, has good fire and chemical resistance properties. Depending on the final use, it is available rigid or flexible. To reduce the resin absorption, the product can be coated with a sealant to reduce porosity and improve bond strength.
These panels have been grid scored and a scrim applied to the backing.
