About our Teak
Teak species - sp. tectona grandis - Teak is native to several countries in the Asian region, including India, Thailand, Vietnam, Indonesia (and also Burma [Myanmar]). In contrast, East African teak, West African teak, and Carribean teak are introduced species while Plantation Teak is a developing industry in several tropical countries.
Teak wood: Genuine Teak has golden brown heartwood, often with dark markings distributed throughout. The sapwood is pale yellow. The juxtaposition of these colors give it a slightly banded appearance in the typically straight longitudinal grain. We focus on Asian Teak because of its comparatively uniform golden brown coloration, and difference both in character and quality from African teak and plantation teak.
In addition to these attributes, Teak is also acid resistant, non-corrosive to metals, water resistant, and fire resistant. It is relatively easy to work with, nailing well, but gluing can be problematic because of Teak's innately oily nature.
Teak uses: Due to Teak's natural water resistance and rot resistance, it has long been used extensively in shipbuilding, boat-building, cabinet making, joinery, flooring and furniture. Teak is also a logical choice for laboratory fittings and laboratory accessories due to the acid resistant and non-corrosive properties.
Teak sourcing:We supply authentic and plantation Teak which is sourced through legitimate non-Burmese channels in Asia and elsewhere.
BURMA PROBLEMS: While we continue to supply high quality Teak from non-Burmese sources, we have suspended all sales of teak from Burma due to the humanitarian catastrophe which has engulfed Burma. When that situation changes we will consider supplying Burma Teak at that time.
Hardness: Janka rating - 1,070.
