Basralocus Angelique Guyana Teak

Basralocus or Angélique, known for its exceptional resistance to marine organisms, occupies a special position among wood species. Originally used for hydraulic engineering applications, it is now also available as reservoir wood, primarily from the Brokopondo reservoir in Suriname. The tree trunks preserved in water enable easier and faster drying compared to freshly felled wood. With superior strength properties, Basralocus is suitable for exterior and interior construction, boat building and chemical container construction. Due to the complex harvesting process, reservoir wood is more expensive, but ideal for high-quality products such as decking.

Basralocus is often incorrectly referred to as Guyana teak. Please read our encyclopedia entry on this Guyana teak.
