The bamboo stick Java Black has a natural dark brown colour and originates from Indonesia. All kinds of structures can be built with this dark bamboo species. It is also an excellent bamboo for making furniture, musical instruments or fences. The Java Black bamboo canes have a porous outer layer that can easily be stained or painted.
We also have the Java sticks in our showroom and inspiration garden. Here, you can view this Bamboo Stick Java Black and possibly pick it out and take it with you directly from our warehouse. Because we buy our materials directly from the source, you are assured of the best price and the most beautiful canes with us.
MAINTENANCE AND CLEANINGAfter installing the Bamboo Stick Java Black, you can apply our Bamboo Protector. A specially developed colorless/transparent stain that protects the bamboo from tarnish and discoloration. With outdoor use bamboo will gray and discolor, just like any natural material. We therefore recommend to treat bamboo annually, preferably in spring, with our Bamboo Renovator Dark, a specially developed stain that protects the bamboo and restores the color. Bamboo Renovator Dark is easy to apply to cleaned bamboo using a brush. Use thin layers and spread the Bamboo Renovator Dark well. To clean bamboo you can use our Bamboo Cleaner. Possibly in stubborn dirt / deposits bamboo can also be sprayed off with a high pressure cleaner. But at an appropriate distance to avoid damage.
A SHINY RESULTThere is also an alternative maintenance product available. That is the Bamboo Booster oil Bamboo Booster is a natural oil that can easily be applied with a Maintenance Cloth. With this Bamboo Booster oil you get a nice shiny result. The oil protects and nourishes the bamboo, but does not slow down the process of discoloration.
Bamboo Booster can be applied several times a year for optimal results. The oil can only not be combined with our Bamboo Protector and Bamboo Renovator Dark stain.
With photosynthesis, bamboo extracts CO2 from the air and releases oxygen. Bamboo produces about 40% more oxygen than wood and absorbs up to 35% more CO2 than wood. That makes bamboo better for CO2 offsetting than wood.
More about Bamboo
Bamboo & Environment
The use of bamboo greatly reduces the greenhouse effect and climate change. Bamboo absorbs greenhouse gases and releases 35% more oxygen into the atmosphere than an equivalent species of hardwood. This is due to its high growth rate and photosynthesis. Climate change has been an issue for several years, which is why bamboo could be included as a certified hardwood. Bamboo is also suitable for biomass production because it gives the second highest biomass on earth.
Bamboo & Cracks
A natural characteristic of bamboo is that cracks may appear vertically, this cannot be prevented. These are caused by differences in climate and humidity.
If you treat the bamboo poles with an oil or lacquer, the number of cracks will be less than if you do not apply a protective layer. But unfortunately this cannot be prevented 100%. The cracks can expand and shrink depending on the climate.
Protect the forest: build with bamboo
Every year more than 13 million hectares of forest are cut down.That's 1140 soccer fields every hour. Of course forests are planted, but the annual net loss of forest is over 7 million hectares, which is more than twice the area of Belgium. If those forests were not cut down, up to a quarter less CO2 would be released into the air.
