Pyinkado Wood Lumber

By admin

Pyinkado Wood Lumber – Also known as Burmese Ironwood, Pyinkado has very distinct red-brown color which can last up to a year without forming a patina. One of the hardest woods in the world, it is very dense, durable and resistant to both rot and insect attack. Its overall durability is rated as excellent.

Pyinkado is a truly impressive wood that remains stable and strong in every environment. It is an exotic luxury decking wood, mainly used for high-end residential decking and pool decking. Performance and durability is about the same as top-grade old-growth teak but at a substantially lower price. Pyinkado is a wood species of low exploitation, so it stands out as an exotic but “green” option for luxury projects.

Workability: Pyinkado Wood Lumber is very easy to work, but is exceedingly hard. It has a pronounced blunting effect on cutting edges. Pyinkado glues and finishes moderately well, though it is necessary to wipe the surface of the wood with a solvent prior to gluing/finishing to reduce the natural oils on the surface of the wood. Its best use is for decking, as it is extremely durable and resistant to rot, insects and weather.
