DuraKore® Strip Planks combine the best elements of traditional wooden boat building techniques with advanced, lightweight, composite materials. Engineered as an advance in marine strip planking construction, DuraKore® is often used in conjunction with DuFLEX® composite panels to build compound shapes, such as the hulls in catamaran construction.

DuraKore® Strip Planks are 300mm wide and 2400mm long, manufactured with Diab ProBalsa® end-grain balsa laminated with a hardwood veneers and are pre-scarfed to facilitate joining.

DuraKore® requires a far less elaborate mold or frame system and significantly reduces the material, labour and disposal costs associated with building conventional moulds, or prototyping tooling
Typical applications include one-off composite boatbuilding, conversions or repair work, prototypes, and tooling for all transportation and industrial markets.
