Red angelim

Red angelim

Durability:
Very durable
Strength class:
D50
Applications:

Due to the good mechanical and physical properties, the Angelim Vermelho, or Red Anglim wood is often used in all kind of hydraulic constructions, like bridge constructions, deckings, sheet pilings, jetties, sound barriers, stables and piles.

Details:
Fresh sawn angelim vermelho has a red brown colour, slightly darkening after exposure. The darker lines are characteristic. The sapwood is whitish. Fresh timber has an unpleasant smell, which mainly disappears in time. The wood is often interlocked and the texture is medium coarse.
Hardness:
13.500 N
Machining:
Despite the high density machining goes well with Red Angelim wood. Pre-drilling is necessary. With gluing and finishing are less experiences. The experiences are good for fingerjointing for exterior uses. It dries slowly with some risks of checking and deformation. Smaller dimensions give more risk of deformation.
Botanical name:
Dinizia excelsa Ducke
Remarks:
FSC Angelim Vermelho is available in large quantities in the Amazon regions of Brazil. The 20-30 meters high tree is straight and cilindric, often with buttresses. The diameter of the trunk is up to 1,5 meter, which makes it possible to produce larger dimensions of sawnwood.
