Kapur is an imported hardwood from South East Asia. It is known for it durability as a general construction and internal/external finishing material.
Kapur trees can grow more than 50m in height and have a diameter up to 1 metre. The bark is a grey brown or dark brown in colour with shallow fissures.
Kapur timber is often preferred for external decking. This wood requires no finishing and will not rot when left outdoors where rain and sun will damage other lesser quality woods. Left untreated, kapur will weather to a soft warm shade of gray.
