Brazilian Eucalyptus Wood Floor

Brazilian Eucalyptus Flooring Sample Color: Heartwood is uniformly pinkish to dark red, often a rich, dark red mahogany hue, turning a deep brownish red with age and exposure; sapwood is pale. Frequent black streaks with occasional ingrown grain.

Grain: Frequently interlocked or wavy. Texture is even to moderately coarse.

Variations Within Species And Grades: Moderate to high color variation.

Hardness (Janka): 1910; 48% harder than Northern red oak.

Dimensional Stability: Below average (change coefficient .00296; 7% less stable than red oak).

Durability: Dense and very strong; high resistance to wear.

Workability
Sawing/Machining: Difficult to work because of high density and irregular grain; carbine tooling recommended.

Sanding: Sands well, but dust can stain fabric and wall treatments.

Nailing: Good holding ability.

Finishing: Red color can bleed into some finishes - a problem when mixing species.

Comments: Resistant to termites and fungus
