MECHANICAL PROPERTIES Medium bending and high crush strength. Low stiffness and resistance to shock. Fissile and brittle with great dimensional stability. Moderate steam bending characteristics.
WORKING PROPERTIES Medium resistance to cutting tools with a severe blunting effect. Pre-drilling required for nailing. Gluing is good on freshly planed or sanded surfaces. Fine machine dust is a skin irritant. Stains well and takes a satisfactory finish, especially an oil finish.
DURABILITY Very durable. Susceptible to insect attack. Extremely resistant to preservative treatment.
SEASONING Dries well, but slowly. Variations in drying rates can occur in individual pieces. Standing trees are girdled and left to dry for three years before felling. Small movement.
USES Extensively used in ship and boat building for decking, rails, hatches, etc. Furniture and cabinetmaking, flooring, garden furniture, chemical vats, fume ducts, laboratory benches, plywood, and decorative veneers.
COMMENTS Acid and fire resistant. Due to US sanctions, we cannot sell true Burmese teak. The teak we sell is responsibly harvested from plantations in Africa, India, and Central and South America, and were planted with seeds harvested from true Burmese teak. You can rest assured that none of our teak has been harvested from Conflict zones such as Myanmar.
