BANOVA® PLUS - Lightweight and high performance

BANOVA® PLUS is the world’s lightest plywood with a core made of balsa from 100% FSC®-certified plantations (FSC-C019065). Its weight reduction of 50-70% in comparison to conventional wood panels is impressive, as is the high thermal insulation and lamination abilities. The panel is refined with a regionally available light hardwood, which provides thin but more resistant high-end surfaces. The new product is easy to process and brings high value to the manufacturing chain as well as in the final application.



Look for FSC®‐certified products.

BANOVA® PLUS fulfills the needs of various markets:
