Explain why the identified product has been chosen From all its benefits, there are three main reasons that make Paulownia the best timber to make surfboards: Light weight: Paulownia wood is the lightest known timber other than balsa. It is also named the Aluminium of Timber. It is around two thirds of the weight of the lightest commercial wood currently being grown in Europe. Paulownia wood is a third of the weight of Oak and half the weight of Pine. Strength: Paulownia wood has the highest strenght to weight ratios of any wood in the world, with a strenght of 18lbs p/cubic ft. against balsa with an average weight of 10lbs p/cubic foot. Salwater resistant: Probably the most interesting characteristic for making wood surfboards. If it resists salt water it means there is no need of fiberglass or any other chemical sealer!

The product and how it was chosen Australian Paulownia is descended from native Asia and is now an Australian Plantation timber, grown in four states. Paulownia is light in weight and pale blonde in colour with its own character grain but approximately the same strength as Cedar. It has a magic feel like a firm balsa wood. It is very light and can be painted or stained to resemble any timber.

    As a current student on this bumpy collegiate pathway, I stumbled upon Course Hero, where I can find study resources for nearly all my courses, get online help from tutors 24/7, and even share my old projects, papers, and lecture notes with other students.

    I cannot even describe how much Course Hero helped me this summer. It’s truly become something I can always rely on and help me. In the end, I was not only able to survive summer classes, but I was able to thrive thanks to Course Hero.

    The ability to access any university’s resources through Course Hero proved invaluable in my case. I was behind on Tulane coursework and actually used UCLA’s materials to help me move forward and get everything together on time.
