|Manufacturer Part No.||CB3/4F|
The end grain configuration of balsa provides high resistance to crushing, and is very difficult to tear apart. End grain balsa cored panels also have the ability to handle excessive dynamic loads with high resistance to fatigue. Until recently, end grain balsa was excluded from some weight sensitive applications, as there were lower density foam cores available. Now, through controlled growing and careful selection, CarbonBalsa balsa wood is competitive in weight, as well as offering superior performance in stiffness and strength, particularly where local crushing or bruising is a concern. "F" – is a scrimmed and scored variety that is not seal coated to reduce resin consumption. It is used in applications where simple and compound curves may be encountered.
