About Rubberwood

Rubberwood is an eco friendly hardwood belonging to the Euphorbiaceae family. Also called Parawood in Thailand, it is the common name for the timber of Hevea brasiliensis.

Contrary to its name, rubberwood is one of the more durable lumbers used in the manufacturing of today’s home furnishings. It is easy to work with by both hand and machine tools. It glues, stains and finishes well with very little tendency to warp or crack. With a dense grain character that is easily controlled in the kiln drying process, rubberwood experiences minimal shrinkage, thus making it one of the more stable construction materials available for furniture manufacturing.

Rubberwood produces latex used throughout the world for all rubber based products. At the end of the economic life of the rubber tree (generally 26-30 years), the latex yields become extremely low and so farmers then fell the rubber trees and plant new ones. Unlike other woods that are cut down for the sole purpose of producing furniture, rubberwood is only used after it completes its latex producing cycle and dies, hence making it the most ecologically “friendly” lumber used in today’s furniture industry.
