SPECIES

(Tabebuia spp.), more commonly known as Brazilian Walnut or “Iron wood” is an extremely dense, durable and beautiful tropical hardwood from South America. The highest quality and most consistent Ipe is harvested in Brazil. It is one of the most stable of all the durable timbers. It dries extremely well with little checking, twisting, or bow. It is widely recognized for its strength and natural resistance to decay. It can be used in ground contact without preservatives or additional treatments. Ipe has become the predominant specie used for residential decks as well when the most attractive and durable wood is desired.

WHY USE IPE?

  • High density, which results in a high fire-resistence rating
  • Natural resistance to rot and decay. Heartwood is very resistant to attack of fungi and termites
  • Natural alternative to PVC or composite products
  • It can be used without preservatives or additional treatments and is expected to last 30+ years

APPLICATIONS

  • Decking

(Dinizia excelsa), is red brown and the sapwood is clearly demarcated. The grain is straight or interlocked and the texture is medium. Angelim vermelho is very durable to fungi and is durable to dry wood borers; sapwood demarcated (risk limited to sapwood). Due to its high specific gravity and hardness, this species naturally covers the biological hazard class 5 (end-uses in marine environment or brackish water). 

WHY USE ANGELIM VERMELHO?

  • Excellent mechanical and physical properties
  • High resistance to fungi and insects attacks
  • High density
  • It is the preferred wood, due its resistance and natural durability for works that request longevity and are subject to adverse conditions
