3A Composites and Bcomp have entered into a cooperation for the development, production and marketing of innovative, engineered core material solutions.
3A explain that these solutions combine their structural core materials with Bcomp’s natural fibre technologies in an aim to optimally meet the customer and application specific requirements of market segments that show promising growth potentials for sandwich solutions.
According to 3A, the first results of this collaboration are two new bCores. They say the multilayer core materials, consisting of AIREX / BALTEK material and Bcomp natural fibre products, are currently setting new standards in the Ski- and Snowboard industry, delivering the same structural performance as standard wood cores at about six times less weight, resulting in skis 30% lighter than current products.
3A Composites is very satisfied to collaborate with the Bcomp team and to benefit from their market experience in the sports and leisure segment. They say the partnership is a great opportunity for Bcomp, opening new markets for their jointly developed solutions.
