What is Keruing?
Keruing is classified as hardwood, and it comes from South East Asia. It can be used for both, internal and external purposes. It is known under a variety of names, so do not be confused when you come across names like Panau, Dau Eng, Dipterocarpus spp., Dipterocarpus cornutus, etc. Basically, its alternative names usually include the term Dipterocarpus (coming from Greek), which represents a flowering plant and the third largest and divers type among Dipterocarpaceae. They are known for timber and wood products.

Keruing refers to timber made from 70 species of the Dipterocarpus genus. The wood is usually collected in forests which are regulated and subject to regeneration processes. The species can generate deep-pink, purple-red, orange-pink, and read-brown (the most common) heartwood. The older the wood gets, the darker it becomes. The texture is always uniform though it can range from rough to fine wood.

Is Keruing Becoming Extinct?
It is yet not 100% clear if the Dipterocarpus falls under the category of endangered species because it has been over-exploited over the years. Some say that it is an endangered species, but it does not appear in the CITES Appendices. The CITES is the Convention on International Trade in Endangered Species of Wild Fauna and Flora, an agreement signed among governments on an international level to keep endangered species in check. Their main goal is to supervise that international trade does not threaten the survival of wildlife and plants. Timber ranks very high among the supervised products and goods. Countries and states join CITES on a voluntary basis and it is binding to some extent, but still it is not a national law and serves more as a general framework to be respected.

Purpose and Use
Keruing wood does not require detailed maintenance and is therefore very suitable for outdoor furniture. Since the wood is solid and moderately durable, it can last a long time and withstand different weathers and climates. It is also used in construction. Often it is used for indoor flooring, panel and framework constructions, moldings, and others. Railway ties, crossties, and wooden cross-arms are also often made of the preservative-treated wood.
Keruing is often used in construction for decking, crossties, etc., instead of the very expensive oak. It is an affordable and high-quality material for multiple purposes. One of Keruing’s advantages includes that it is ready for application and never needs curing like other woods. It does not leach, but it has oleoresins which will appear on the surface during the drying process or when exposed to sun or heat. It is commonly used as plywood in numerous households.

Keruing Plywood
If you would like to try out Keruing Plywood, you have to pay attention to the species. There are different of them. The quality of the material depends heavily on the species it has been produced of.
The material is easily operated by hands or machinery tools. So, you will not have a problem with cutting it or making something out of it. The only disadvantage when working with it is that your cutters will not be sharp as before. The wood has a significant amount of silica which dulls the sharp edges of tools. As we already mentioned that it releases oleoresins during drying, that might stay on the operating tools and clog them, and it affects wood finishing.
Even if Keruing is known for large-scale exports, it is not very common in North America, except in the form of lumber or flooring planks.
Nevertheless, Keruing is very popular for its variability in color, weight, uniformity and is easy to work with. The main distribution points are India, Cambodia, Burma, Sri Lanka, the Andamans, South Vietnam, and the Philippines.
