Massaranduba (Brazilian Redwood) Hardwood Flooring Spotlight
Welcome back to the Nova USA Wood blog, the most in-depth hardwood species series on the web. Today's blog is a product spotlight on another beautiful exotic hardwood, Massaranduba.
Massaranduba, along with being somewhat of a tongue twister, is also commonly known as Brazilian Redwood. In a Clear grade this species has a very uniform red tone; hence the Redwood name. Nova USA imports Clear grade Massaranduba flooring in unfinished only.

Prefinished Massaranduba Hardwood Flooring
As Massaranduba ages it will slowly darken to a warm brownish-red color with plum undertones. The grain of the wood is considered tight and somewhat wavy. Similar to Patagonian Rosewood
, Massaranduba is an extremely dense & durable wood that will hold up to the highest levels of foot traffic. Massaranduba has a hardness rating of 3190, which is equivalent to Cumaru
and 2.5 times harder than Red Oak. Stability for this species is average.
Nova USA imports Massaranduba in 3/4" x 3", 3-1/4", 4", & 5" widths. Lengths are random 1'-7'.
