Daeng | Heavy and hard
This tree is found in South and Southeast Asia; it is known as Daeng in Thailand, Pyinkado in Burma, Căm xe in Vietnam, Sokram in Cambodia and Jamba in Karnataka (India). Daeng wood is heavy; extremely hard; very strong; very durable, being resistant to the weather as well as termites and other insects – untreated sleepers lasted for 12 years in Thailand and for 20-24 years in India.
The heartwood is dark red, slightly streaked and very fine; it is clearly demarcated from the thick, yellowish-white sapwood. The grain is interlocked or wavy; the texture moderately fine to medium and even; the surface somewhat gummy, causing a speckled appearance.
Classified as an ‘ironwood’ in Vietnam with its name referring to use in traditional cart making.
