A very durable type of wood (durability class I), that is predominantly processed in heavier applications like locks-gates, bridges, purlins, piles and sheet piling. Yet, in smaller projects, Azobe is also often applied for garden fencing, bottom rail and scaffolds.
The heartwood looks freshly red-brown and will discolour over time towards dark red to chocolate brown and sometimes to a more violet dark red-brown colour. Azobe has striking white to yellow coloured ingredients in the vessels. In general, the structure is rather regular. Due to the interlocked grain structure, alternating light and dark tracks can be noticed on the quartered surface, not be confused with young wood. Despite the hardness, Azobe is easy to process by machines.
