Myanmar Teak

Myanmar teak is called “natural teak”, “true teak”, etc. It is authentic wood, completely different from “cultivated teak” from Indonesia and Malaysia. Due to its excellent strength and beauty, it has been used as a high class construction material in Europe and throughout the world since long ago. This wood has a long history.

It is known for its great durability, water resistance and strength in sea water. Teak has been an important material for ship decks since long ago. Teak was used on the ship deck of the luxury ship RMS Titanic, that sunk in the North Atlantic in 1912. It has even been confirmed that this teak has not rotten at the bottom of the sea.

Teak has other benefits besides these strengths.

Wood is affected by light and oxidation. Its color changes with time. But teak has special characteristics that change differently from other woods.

Teak has a characteristic dark grain and stain-like patterns. But as time passes, these soften and blend into their surroundings, for an integrated impression overall. It changes from bands of tea and yellow into a caramel color.

Beauty and depth of Myanmar Teak increase with time.

New teak wood has its characteristic dark grains and thick patterns in places. But with time, its pattern and tea and tan color bands steadily change over time as its dark grain and thick patterns soften. It changes into caramel color, creating a calm, elegant ambiance.

Myanmar Teak Characteristics

  • Long Life

Myanmar teak uses mature trees that have grown for 150 to over 200 years. A ring is cut around the tree before cutting it down. Then it is diligently cut into lumber, dried, and processed. This all takes 6 to 7 years until delivery to customers. It is generally said to maintain its quality for about the same number of years as the treeʼs life. Its dignity grows with time, with no fading.

  • Strong against water

Very old Myanmar teak contains much natural oil. Strong against wind and rain, it does not decay. It has been used to build ships, as lumber for bridge piers, etc.

Strong against humidity

Teak grows in tropical rainforests. It is strong against high temperature and humidity, with little shrinking, stretching or warping. This makes it good for climates like Japan.

  • Strong against insects

Very old Myanmar teak has much natural oil which contains tectoquinone. It is very resistant against termites and other insects.

  • Chemical treatment is not needed

The lumber itself has excellent resistance to insects and heat, so chemical treatment against insects and water is not needed in its manufacturing process. Therefore, Myanmar teak can be used with children and pets safely without worries.

ミャンマーチーク

ミャンマーチークは別名「本チーク」と呼ばれ、世界でも北米産ウォールナット・ローズウッドに並び三大銘木として数えられる、世界に誇る銘木です。一般的に「チーク材」の総称とされてしまっているインドネシアやマレーシアの「植林チーク」とは完全に区別されています。ミャンマーチークは耐久性・耐水性が高く、特に抗菌・防虫性に優れており、

 ◆ミャンマーチークの特徴

  • 時間経過に強い

ミャンマーチークは高樹齢150年~200年以上の成熟樹を使用し、巻き枯らし(伐採の3~5年程度前から、立ち木のまま樹の周囲に切り込みを入れ水分を抜き、水分量の調整と引き締めを行う事)・切り出し・製材・自然乾燥・人工乾燥・製品加工など、商品としてお客様に届くまでの6~7年の間、丹念に仕上げられています。こうした工程により、一般的に樹齢と同じくらいの150年~200年はその品質が保たれるといわれており、古来より長期保存が必要とされているミャンマーの多くの仏教寺院やホテルの床材、公共施設などでも使用されています。また、時間の経過によってその品質は失われることがなく、年をおうたびに重厚感を増し色あせることがありません。

  • 水・雨・海水に強い

高樹齢のミャンマーチークは天然のオイル成分を多く含み、長い間水に浸かるような状態や雨風にも強く腐食しません。また接触する船の釘などの金属を錆びにくくさせる効果があります。
その耐水性は造船材としての実績もそうですが、木製の橋脚にも使われている事からも証明されています。

  • 湿気に強い

熱帯雨林のミャンマーで育ったチーク材は、高温多湿にも強いという特性をもちます。しっかりと乾燥・加工されたミャンマーチークは、度重なる湿気や乾燥によるひび割れ・木材の伸縮、変形がほとんどありません。

  • 虫に強い

高樹齢のミャンマーチークが多く含む、天然のオイル成分「テクトキノン」は、虫害、特にシロアリに高い防虫性を発揮し、床下や建築材料として多く使われています。

  • 化学処理が不要

このように木材自体が防虫防湿効果に優れており、製作過程において化学処理が不要となっております。したがいまして、ミャンマーチークはお子様にも安心してご使用いただけます。
