The AIREXBALTEKBANOVA brand represents the AIREX®, BALTEK®, BANOVA® products’ range comprised of foam and balsa lightweight solutions:

AIREX® stands for structural foam cores.

The product name AIREX® consists of the word AIR and EX for expansion. Specifically, our AIREX® foam products are composed of closed cells filled with air. This minimizes the consumption of resin as well as weight and costs.

AIREX® rigid foams have formidable mechanical properties and minimal weight. When used as a core material between two thin, stiff face sheets they create sandwich structures that can be more than 50% lighter than conventional structures.

BALTEK® stands for structural balsa cores.

BALTEK® is a structural core material made of balsa wood, a natural and renewable resource. Very little energy is required to process natural balsa wood into structural end-grain core material.

3A Composites Core Materials owns and manages several thousand hectares of FSC® certified balsa wood plantations in Ecuador and Papua New Guinea. The growing of our own seedlings as well as several local sawmills guarantee sustainable forest management and continuous availability of this material for industrial-end customers.

BANOVA® stands for balsa wood veneer boards.

BANOVA® is high-quality, lightweight building boards based on balsa wood veneer for weight sensitive interior fittings. BANOVA® offers minimum weight with high stability. BANOVA® is also combined with a variety of materials in order to fulfill additional requirements. Therefore, its adaptability is nearly unlimited.
