3A Composites and Bcomp GmbH have entered into a cooperation for the development, production and marketing of innovative, engineered core material solutions.

These solutions, combining 3A Composites’ leading structural core materials with Bcomp’s innovative, natural fibre technologies, will optimally meet the customer and application specific requirements of market segments that show promising growth potentials for sandwich solutions.        

First results of this fruitful collaboration are two new bCores. 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 young and enthusiastic Bcomp team and to benefit from their market experience in the sports and leisure segment. A partnership with the global leader in structural core materials is a great opportunity for a young company like Bcomp, opening new markets for their jointly developed solutions. 3A Composites and Bcomp are convinced to create together sustainable solutions with unique advantages for their customers.
