Usually sucupira is used as decking, but we can mill it as flooring or to whatever custom specifications you have at our closest to you. all of our sucupira decking is kiln dried. Our kiln drying process is customized for each load of wood. the cellular structure, density and moisture levels of that particular batch are the criteria used when we determine the temperature and time we will dry the sucupira for. Sucupira is dried slower than most woods because of its high density and moisture level.

This is beneficial because it resists wear and tear, is stronger, resistant wood eating insects and is more resistant to rot. Like all the other hardwood decking materials, you have to take care when cutting and drilling as it will dull normal bits and blades.
