What Is Jabroc® Wood?
Jabroc® is a high-density wood laminate, manufactured using extremely high pressure and temperature. Its predictable and uniform friction plus wear characteristics made it ideal for skid plates.
The skid block or 'plank', was introduced as part of the safety changes that followed Ayrton Senna's fatal crash. It is used as a gauge which restricts the minimum ride height attainable by the car. The closer the car is to the ground, the more efficient the front wing and rear diffuser. The higher the down force levels, the faster a driver may corner. Cornering loads can push the car down much lower to the road, which can be dangerous and so the skid block was introduced to counteract this. The thickness of the plank is one of the parc ferme tests. If it is found to be worn beyond the allowed limit, the car is disqualified.
The 2017 FIA F1 technical regulations now state however:
8. h) Must be made from Titanium alloy.
Jabroc® wood has half the strength of steel although only 80% of its weight, and as we know, strength and weight play an important role in motorsport. It is considered to be the carbon fibre of the wood-world.
