3A - Banova The Worlds Lightest Ply

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. This new product from 3A Composites is easy to process and brings high value to the manufacturing chain as well as in the final application.
