Jensen Leisure Care and Maintenance


Some of the world's strongest and most durable woods come from the Chiquitania Dry Forest of Eastern Bolivia. Because of the nature of tropical dry forests, trees grow very slowly here. Ipé is one of the most abundant timber species in these forests. It is incredibly strong and dense, with very high wear durability.

A rich chocolate-brown color when new, the sun gracefully transforms Ipé to a mature, elegant silver patina. The original color remains preserved, however, just beneath the "skin" of the weathered surface. You can choose to allow your furniture to weather naturally or preserve the original color through simple maintenance.

To preserve the original color, we recommend and supply Penofin Verde, a special oil finish. It contains a light transparent pigment that screens the UV light and enhances the tone and hue of Ipé without hiding the grain. It is simple to apply using a lint-free cloth, sponge, or even spray bottle. In average climates, it is sufficient to recoat fully exposed furniture once a year. More frequent re-coating may be needed in regions with high sunshine. Our website features detailed instructions on how to care for your Ipé furniture.

For additional protection from water and moisture, we recommend and supply Wood Shield. Applied to Ipé or Roble tabletops, Wood Shield will provide protection from household food stains–wine, olive oil, grease stains, water spotting, etc.

Wood is a living material, sensitive to the constant changes of the outdoor environment. Although Ipé is naturally stable, minute checks in the wood surface may appear if the furniture is placed in very dry or sunny environments for prolonged periods. Superficial checking in no way effects the structural integrity or longevity of your furniture.
