is the product principally of Intsia palembanica and I.bijuga.
It seasons slowly without any degrade except for some Powder
post beetle attacks on the sapwood. It is strongly recommended
that this timber should be used free of sapwood as the sapwood
is very perishable.
General description of the wood:- Sapwood is well-defined and pale yellow in
colour. Heartwood is yellowish to orange-brown when fresh, weathering to brown
or dark red-brown. Growth rings are fairly distinct; grain is interlocked. The
texture is coarse but even.
