  • If exposed to the elements and left untreated, ipe will gradually develop a grey patina. Treating annually minimizes this color change, but isn't required to retain durability and resistance to the elements.
  • To revitalize ipe's color, treat annually with products designed for tropical hardwoods. We recommend Penofin® Verde oil in Natural or Golden Care® products, including Hardwood & Teak Cleaner, Hardwood Protector and Hardwood & Teak Shield. For the best results, follow the instructions on the product's label.
  • Cover wood furniture or store indoors when not in use to extend its life.
