CHENGAL

ORIGIN

Malaysia.

INFO

Chengal is the product of a single species, Neobalanocarpus heimii, in Peninsular Malaysia. It is an exceptional outdoor wood known for its strength and durability against harsh weather conditions. The only flaw in this wood is the numerous “pin holes” which are the galleries of dead Ambrosia beetles that attack almost all living trees of Chengal. Except on aesthetic grounds, this is not objectionable because the strength of the wood is never significantly affected by these pin holes.

APPEARANCE

Sapwood is well-defined. When freshly sawn, the heartwood is light yellow-brown with a distinct greenish tinge darkening on exposure to purple-brown or rust red. 

COMMONLY USED

Outdoor Decking, Staircase, Handrail, Wall Cladding, Screen and Ceiling.
