Also known as Eucalyptus pilularis, blackbutt timber is one of the most popular building materials in Australia – and for good reason. While it’s mostly used for exteriors and structural elements, it's also a common component of plywood due to its hardy, durable nature. This versatile and beautiful hardwood offers a variety of benefits and just might be the perfect material for your next project.
Why Choose Blackbutt Timber?
Whether you use it for internal or external flooring, cladding, framing, fencing or furniture, blackbutt timber will offer a beautiful, unique touch to your next commercial or residential construction project.
Thanks to its fast growth and regeneration, as well as its widespread across NSW and Queensland, blackbutt is one of the more cost-effective hardwood timbers. This makes it the perfect solution for large projects such as shopping centres, multi-level housing and more. It’s incredibly durable, with a hardness rating of 9.1 and a natural resistance to decay and pests – which means it requires less costly maintenance.
Not only is blackbutt durable and versatile, but it’s also eye-catching. Colours range from pale yellow to various shades of brown – you may even find some light pink! Its beautiful texture and straight grain make it perfect for interior projects.
Blackbutt timber is easy to work with and machines well. It’s important to note that the tannins may bleed through paint and cause discolouration. That being said, blackbutt will easily accept most stains, oils and polishes, so there are plenty of other ways to finish it!
Perhaps one of the greatest benefits to working with blackbutt timber is that it offers great fire resistance and is one of the only hardwoods that – when cut to a thickness of at least 18 mm – has been approved for use in bushfire-prone areas.
