AZOBE

The azobe has a very high mechanical strength. The heartwood of the azobe is durable even in a damp environment and it has a high resistance to shipworm. The tests carried out by the "Centre Technique Forestier Tropical" confirm that azobe wood can be considered practically immune to rotting, extremely durable and impact-resistant, with very good qualities of elasticity and mechanical strength, and that it can be classed as one of the few species in the world truly resistant to aggression by xylophagous insects including, among others, termites and woodworm, as well as by teredo navalis.

It can therefore be said of the Azobe that it is truly the ideal wood for any outdoor works, on both damp and dry ground and in fresh or salt water. It is practically everlasting thanks to its excellent qualities of resistance to rotting and its strength.

Azobe is the hardest industrially used wood in the world.

The heartwood is not prone to catching fire and is naturally very resistant to weathering, acids and vegetable and animal parasites. Even termites are unable to damage it.

Its properties in terms of strength are remarkable. Following are the most important parameters, compared to those of oak-wood, with which we are all familiar:
