Merbau is a popular timber used for many different projects including furniture, decking, framing, pergolas and many more… Its grain and growth ring figure together with its dark red-brown colour gives it a very attractive appearance which is suitable for high class finish.
Merbau does tend to bleed/leach more than most other timbers. This can continue for up to 67 months or more. Avoid using merbau when it’s near Concrete/ stone and other masonry type structures as it will leave dark stains that can be difficult to remove. Always allow merbau to leach naturally and avoid applying any sealers/oils to it when used externally for at least 7-8 months to let the Tannins come out of the timber. You’ll then need to clean the merbau with a deck clean or NapiSan and hot water to remove the black stains and dirt from the timber before applying a finish.
