Our KAYU® Ipe™ is a gorgeous, dense hardwood imported from Indonesia with a unique blend of rich, golden red/brown colors. With a density of about 1150kg/mg, Ipe can’t compare with those numbers.

Aside from Ipe being one of homeowners’ favorite species because of its natural warm beauty, it is an incredibly durable wood. Its dense cell structure serves as a natural deterrent to insects, decay, and molds. Its quality is tried and tested over time and its sturdiness is of no doubt why it is often used in the construction of projects that require water-resistant woods like boat docks, bridges or watercraft ramps.
Woods of high density are more preferable to homeowners and builders these days. They are more reliable for their longevity, durability and relatively low-maintenance requirements. Incidents where properly maintained Ipe is replaced due to pests or weather damages are unusual because one of its strongest attributes is being able to withstand these conditions.
