Our goal is to be a world leader in the industrialization of balsa wood, offering value-added products that differentiate us from our competition.
It is AAA quality balsa, used for modelism and architectural model.
Balsa wood has been one of the main materials for model aeroplanes construction since about 1920. Balsa is light, bur with high strength, it absorbs the shock and vibration of heavy landings quite well and can be easily worked with hand tools. Its lightness is due to the microscopic structure of large water filled cells, that when dried become empty lignin skins holding nothing but air.
Balsa trees grow rapidly in the humid rain forest of Central and South America. Ecuador has the ideal geography and climate for growing balsa trees, situated on the western coast of South America, it has become the primary source of model aircraft grade balsa wood.
Finished balsa wood, like you would use for model aeroplane construction, varies considerably in density and grain. Balsa can be found weighing as little as 4 lb per cubic ft up to 24 lb or more per cubic ft (65 to 360 kg/m3).
