    Koompassia malaccensis

    Impas
    Mengris
    Thongbeung

    Origin:

    Malaysia and Indonesia

    Appearance:

    The sapwood of kempas is yellow to pale white, while the heartwood is orangish-red to reddish-brown in color upon drying. This species has an interlocked, sometimes spiraled grain, is fairly lusterous, and is coarse in texture.

    Properties:

    Janka Hardness: 1710

    As a flooring option kempas is a hard and durable wood. It is nearly identical in hardness to African padauk, is roughly eighteen percent harder than hard maple, about one third harder than red oak, and approaches eighty percent of santos mahogany's ranking of 2200.

    Workability:

    Kempas contains pockets of hard deposits that can provide some difficulty when sawing and can promote blunting of tools. Pre-boring is suggested yet the wood holds nails well once applied. Glue holds well with kempas flooring. This species sands well but does require some filling to ensure a good polish.
