AIREX®, BALTEK® - Foam and balsa cores that deliver uncompromised performance for aerospace

Stringent requirements of modern aerospace in regards to stability, weight, operating temperature, fire inhibition, and rigidity leave little room for compromise when it comes to the selection of materials.
Therefore it is only consistent that the area of lightweight core materials always pursues new innovations that continue to impressively demonstrate their practical feasibility for air traffic applications. Our core competencies in materials science, prototype manufacture, and the production and processing of our composites AIREX®, BALTEK® are utilized here according to customer wishes.

The lowest possible weight is a direct factor for the maximization of flight qualities and the minimization of fuel costs or respectively increased weight capacity. Aerospace applications therefore serve as prime examples for complex lightweight systems:

  • General aerospace
  • Commercial aircraft
  • Military aircraft
  • Helicopters
  • Significant weight savings potential
  • Lower total operating costs
  • Excellent mechanical properties
  • High thermal insulation
  • Easy processing
  • Radar transparency
  • Fuselage
  • Wings
  • Flaps and covers
  • Helicopter rotor blades
  • Cover panels, overhead compartments, and floors
  • Galleys, serving trolleys
  • Transport containers and pallets
  • Radomes




3A Composites is proud to have made a small but very important contribution in the noble mission of the ORBIS Flying Eye Hospital: The know-how of our BALTEK® engineers helped keep ORBIS lightweight and therefore enables cost-effective operation.
