Scientific Name: Tabebuia Serratifolia
Brazilian Name: Ipe

Ipe`, or Brazilian Walnut, is one of the most dense and stunning exotic hardwoods available on the market. With a hardness that is three times that of oak, Ipe` is extremely durable and heavy. The grains are full of ipei`na- or yellow to greenish deposits, which create striations or yellow powder on the wood. Additionally, it appears to have an oily patina; turning to a beautifully silver, especially in decking.

Its surface is smooth without splinters or knots, and resists scratching. Architects and engineers prefer to work with Brazilian Walnut as it is exceptionally fire, pest, and weather resistant; maintaining such resistance for a minimum of 25 years, making a great choice for outdoor decks.

Brazilian Walnut- Ipe - is available in Flooring Prefinished and Unfinished Solid construction, also Ipe is available in Decking and Lumber form.

Installation: Pre-drilling may be required.
