Ipê (Brazilian Walnut) Flooring

By Kirsten Kapsin, (283 words) Posted in Hardwood Flooring on December 19, 2008

Ipê, also know as Brazilian Walnut flooring comes from a type of tree that descends from the plant family Tabebuia. This species is native to some parts of South America (most notably Brazil), Mexico and the Caribbean islands. Ipê trees are often used as timber to make decking, flooring and furniture. The popularity of Ipê flooring and high-end furniture has led to deforestation in many parts of Brazil. Now, many of the Ipê forests that contribute to flooring manufacturing are certified by the Forest Stewardship Council (FSC).

Brazilian Walnut flooring is generally more stable than Red Oak flooring. It's also available in a variety of colors that range from pale yellow tones to blackish brown. A drawback to Ipê flooring is that it's often associated with allergic reactions as a result of contact with the wood (e.g. contact dermatitis; respiratory irritation). When refinishing or installing Brazilian Walnut floors, make sure that you keep the room well-ventilated so as to avoid an allergy attack.

Brazilian Walnut flooring ranks very high on the Janka Hardness Scale* with a 3680 (4000 being the hardest and 0 being the softest). In comparison to Red Oak flooring, which has a Janka Hardness rating of 1260, Brazilian Walnut is one of the denser hardwood floors on the market.

To learn more about Ipê or Brazilian Walnut flooring and other types of hardwood species, check out our Hardwood Species section. There you'll find dozens of the most popular exotic and domestic hardwood floor types.

*Janka Hardness Scale is used to denote the density of a particular wood by measuring the amount of pressure (in pounds-force) that's required to drive a steel ball halfway into the wood's surface.

Both brands rely on distinctive features so it’s always immediately possible Panerai Replica to recognize the model as an IWC or a Breitling. But where IWC tinkers with its design and continues to develop its look or make steps toward its origins Fake Rolex Breitling invents itself anew while still leaving its icon intact Rolex Replica Both always have a rotating bezel with raised markers.
