Massaranduba Brazilian Redwood hardness, stiffness, gravity, shearing strength, weight, density and static bend

 

Buying Massaranduba wood is buying a hardwood which is a good choice on quality while being much more economic than alternatives such as Ipe. Please do not that you should ALWAYS buy massaranduba kiln dried (KD), this means with a moisture content something around 12% in order to prevent any kind of distortions such as cracking, warping, bending etc. If you buy your massaranduba Hardydeck guarantees a 100% buy for satisfaction because it is perfect quality and for a good price.

 

Not just the quality or the price of massaranduba makes you decide for Massaranduba lumber, also the aspect of environmental friendliness should make you decide buying massaranduba decking. Massaranduba, unlike composite decking products, is not chemically treated. Instead it comes from sustainable managed forests, a very important aspect for Hardydeck complying with the recent put into practice Lacey Act (US) and FLEGT Action Plan. These two act aims to prevent imports from illegal woods.
