Merbau is an extremely durable wood, commonly used for windows, doors and door frames.
This type of wood contains a brown ingredient that is soluble in water. The drawback of this substance is that it can leave flecks on the surface of the wood, both before and after finishing. Flecks can also appear after treatment with Restol™ Wood Oil. The best solution is to use a dark colour and carry out regular maintenance.
Our special Hardwood Brown and regular Red Cedar colours are ideal for this type of wood.Back to Special types of Wood
