Ipe wood is considered by wood experts as one of the best tropical woods. This is due to its characteristics and attributes as it has a fine and hard grain that provides luxury and beauty wherever it is found.
It is a wood species, dense and hard, and cannot float on water due to its high density and high concentration of tannins. In addition, ipé wood has excellent durability and resistance to insects and fungi. However, contrary to what is generally believed, this type of hardwood has excellent fire resistance.
Finally, it can also be found in the manufacture of solid wood flooring (interior and exterior), boats, tool handles, high quality furniture, carpentry (doors, stairs, etc.).
