What Is Marine Teak?
Marine Teak wood (Tectona Grandis) is commonly considered by ship builders and
outdoor furniture manufacturer's to be the planet's most versatile, durable,
and valuable hard wood. Teak forests are highly regulated due to the
increased demand, ecological and economical impact, and often sub-standard
working conditions on plantations. It is not a rain forest species; growing in
deciduous forests at a yield of only 3-5 trees per acre. Thus, it is a
precious resource across the globe. However, there are only four countries in
the world that contain natural marine teak forests; Burma, Laos, India, and
Thailand, with Burma (Myanmar) accounting for approximately 80% of the world's
exported natural teak supply.Since the USA trade sanctions of 2003, no burmese
teak has been coming into this country which has driven up teak prices to as
much as $35 per board foot making this scarce resource a valuable commodity.
MarineTeak is a dense, coarse, close-grained hardwood. It contains high
levels of resinous oils that allow it to be naturally resistant to moisture,
repellent to insects, and impervious to the drying effects of weather. Teak
also contains silica, a sand-like component which creates a density to the wood
that allows it to also be resistant to fungal decay, water, rotting, warping,
shrinking, swelling and many damaging chemicals. It will not rust or corrode
metals it comes in contact with and it can withstand the elements of all
seasons, with its beauty increasing with its age. No other wood compares to
100 percent marine grade teak regarding its durability, elegance, stability and
low maintenance; making it the ultimate material choice for furniture
construction and ship building worldwide.
Note: Small camera robots were sent through the sunken Titanic and discovered
the teak lined walls in the turkish bath were still in pristine condition,
looking like they did, the day they were installed and all of the metal and
iron around it was disintegrating from corrosion!
