Mangaris Wood Restoration

Mangaris, also sold as Mangaris Diamond, is a tropical Merbau very close to Ipe. Mangaris is imported from Indonesia and is slightly softer than Ipe but still extremely dense. Grain patterns are slightly more pronounced than in Ipe and will show tannin stains more than found in Ipe. Similar to other hardwoods like Ipe, Mangaris requires specific cleaning and sealing techniques to ensure proper saturation of the wood and complete removal of excess oil for successful deck restoration.
