3A Composites BALTEK® SB balsa core has continuously been ABS-approved for more than 20 years. Due to this fact, 3A Composites Core Materials was the only ABS-approved balsa wood core supplier in the mid-2000’s when Northrop Grumman selected a core material supplier for the DDX (USS Zumwalt, DDG 1000) – an ABS-classed ship design and build for the U.S. Navy. BALTEK® SB balsa core is currently the only balsa core material approved for the U.S. Navy shipbuilding programs.
“BALTEK® SB embodies 3A Composites’ spirit of creating sustainable core materials that help our customers to become greener and positively impact the environment. We are proud to be the only ABS-approved core materials supplier to the U.S. Navy since many years and looking forward to further increase our close cooperation as the U.S. Navy is moving into sustainability“, said Eric Gauthier, President of Global Key Accounts of 3A Composites Core Materials.
