FAQs about Balsa Wood Supplies

The balsa wood tree, scientifically known Ochroma lagopus, is a fast-growing plant that can be found mostly in Central and South America. These trees thrive best in rainforests with mountainous terrain between rivers, according to studies. Ecuador is the greatest exporter of the timber. It is one of the lightest wood available, yet very strong for his weight, making it a great product in art and crafts.

Varnishing balsa, regardless of the varnish used, produces a fuzzy and dry finish that needs sanding to smooth and prepare for the second or subsequent coats. Fiberglass cloth and epoxy finishing resin or a waterborne polycrylic may be the most dependable way to protect balsa for painting.

When the moisture content of balsa wood reaches 20%, it may begin to rot. However, wood decay is a sluggish process in which the fungus begins to grow and consume cellulose from the wood. Wood rot will only progress if the wood is always damp and wet.
