One of the lightest core materials currently available on the market, bCore can be processed like wood and additionally provides a wood-like look and feel. Produced by Bcomp, bCore consists of a range of three different product groups that are used mainly for winter and watersport applications, as well as within other industries.
An ultra-lightweight wood core, bCore D200 has a patented structure combining low-density end and flat grain veneers (FSC certified) with some of the most high-performing flax fibre composites on the market (amplieTEX non-crimps). The result is a core material with superior shear and fatigue strength. The bCore D120 version is also suitable for ultra-lightweight applications and features a combination of recycled PET foam and flax fibre composites.
The most recent development of the three, bCore 250, is composed of flax and hybrid balsa wood. This material offers a particularly robust solution for lightweight products such as skis.
