The tree is up to 30 to 45 in height, with a bole length of 10 to 16 m, usually irregular, often buttressed. The trunk diameter attains to cm. Tangential diameter of vessel lumina micras or more large. Vessels per mm2 less than 6 rare. Prismatic crystals in short chains in chambered axial parenchyma cells. Rays more than 10 per mm abundant. ivorenes
Rays 1 to 4 seriate. Fibers with simple to minutely bordered pits.
The sapwood is yellowish white to pinkish white, it has a thickness of 3 to 6 cm. The heartwood is yellow-brown to red brown, darkening on exposure, it is clearly demarcated. The grain is highly and systematically interlocked; special care is needed when drying because of frequent risks of distortion.
Very durable to decay; without preservative treatment. This species is especially suited for all the uses with risks of permanent or long-lasting humidification. Resistant to termites attack. Heartwood is resistant to Lyctus attacks. It is reported to have a negligible amount of silica. Drying is rather slow and sometimes difficult to perform. Risks of checks and distortions. The kiln schedule has been tested. Moderate blunting effect; stellited blades for sawing and carbide tools for machining are advised.
It needs powerful tools for processing. Possible difficulties caused by interlocked grain are reported. It is recommended to use special tools for cutting.
Scientific Name Erythrophleum ivorense A. Botanical Description The tree is up to 30 to 45 in height, with a bole length of 10 to 16 m, usually irregular, often buttressed.
Natural Habitat Erythrophleum ivorense is reported in evergreen, deciduous and savanna forests. Color The sapwood is yellowish white to pinkish white, it has a thickness of 3 to 6 cm. Grain The grain is highly and systematically interlocked; special care is erythdophleum when drying because of frequent risks of distortion. Texture This wood has a somewhat coarse texture. Natural Durability Very durable to decay; without preservative treatment. Internal Growth Stresses Residual stresses are reported to be absent.
Silica Content Silica Content: Resistance To Impregnation Nearly impossible to treat with a too much low penetration of the preservative substances.
Basic Density or Specific Gravity O. Drying Defects Ease of Drying: Actual Dry Kiln Program http: Sawing Sawing of this species requires powerful equipment. Rotary Veneer Cutting Not suitable for veneering. Sliced Veneer Not erythrophleumm for veneering. Blunting Effect Moderate blunting effect; stellited blades for sawing and carbide tools for machining are advised.
Machining It needs powerful tools for processing. Planing Rather difficult; special tools are needed. Moulding Moderately easy; tools must be cautiously sharpened. Boring Moderately easy; ivorrnse must be cautiously sharpened.
Mortising Moderately easy; tools must be cautiously sharpened. Nailing Pre-boring is necessary. Gluing Difficult to glue because of high density.
