Iron Woods Ipe

IRON WOODS® IPE

Iron Woods Ipe is a Brazilian species recognized for its unrivaled strength, unparalleled beauty and natural resistance to decay. It is known as one of the most durable and versatile timbers available. Iron Woods Ipe is a top performing timber with resistance to decay, termites, and marine borers. It dries extremely well with little checking, twisting, or bow. Ipe can be used in ground contact and salt water without preservatives. It is widely used in commercial exterior construction and as residential decking due to its low maintenance, attractive color, and comfortable walking surface that stands the test of time. Iron Woods Ipe can be left to weather naturally to an attractive silver gray and requires only occasional cleaning. Alternatively, to maintain the wood’s natural rich brown color, periodic cleaning and refinishing is required. Iron Woods Ipe can always be restored to its original appearance because the wood’s natural beauty runs through and through. Iron Woods Ipe is proven to stand up to the elements year-round in all climate conditions including the most extreme.
