DESCRIPTION A fine-grained timber that is light yellow to a warm golden hue. Garapa is an exotic hardwood that is naturally resistant to rot, decay and insect attack. Garapa is naturally scratch resistant which allows the surface to remain smooth for many years.

South America (Brazil)
BOTANICAL NAME Apuleia Leiocarpa
OTHER NAMES Brazilian Ash, Grapia, Amarealao, Marotoa, Muiratua, Muirajuba
MECHANICAL PROPERTIES Due to the high silica content this wood requires carbide tooling when milling it. This silica content also has a dulling effect on drill bits and plug cutters.
WORKING PROPERTIES This wood is easier to work with than the harder wood decking options we offer such as: Ipe and Cumaru
DURABILITY Great durability with a very high resistance to daily wear and tear. Garapa also features a Class A fire rating.
SEASONING As the wood weathers, it takes on light silvery gray tones. This natural process can be inhibited by using a sealer to keep its natural color.
USES Exterior jointery, carpentry, ship building, turned goods, furniture, flooring, stairs, tool handles, exterior decking.
COMMENTS Garapa is native to Brazil.
