Australian Made Timber

Otherwise known as Syncarpia Glomulifera, Turpentine timber is an extremely hard and durable Australian hardwood timber. With similar properties to Ironbark and Darwin Stringybark, Turpentine is a popular choice for a wide range of construction and engineering applications.

The true wood of this species ranges in colour from deep red to red-brown, and the sapwood is distinctively paler, often creamy. The texture is fine to medium but often wavy, with interlocked grain and it is relatively free of gum veins.

Turpentine is extremely durable in above ground applications, where its life expectancy is in excess of 40 years. In-ground life expectancy ranges from 15 to 25 years. The timber of this species is termite-resistant, and untreated sapwood is immune to lyctid borer attack.

Untreated timber of this species is equivalent to ‘fire retardant treated timber’ when tested in accordance with AS/NZS 3837. The bushfire rating of this species is expected to remain unchanged if assessed in accordance with proposed changes to the standard.
