Sometimes also called demarara green heart.
Ipé is one of the best-known types of wood for decking/decking. It has a high density and great stability, which makes it ideal for terrace construction.
Note: There can be major differences in structure and color.
It is often the first choice for shipbuilding, especially boats and decks. It is also used for bridges and piers.
It's hard to edit, but mind-bogglingly strong. That is why it is used in situations where poor drying does not matter - for example under water - and it does not matter that surfaces are not perfect.
This tropical hardwood is not an easy wood to work with. An advantage is that the surface can be finished to a beautifully smooth end result, but it does take some effort to achieve this.
Ipé is not widely available, but it can be found at specialist importers and specialist timber stores. Are you interested in the price of ipé? Request a quote without obligation.
