Wood Properties:
It is described to be fairly hard to work but can be finished smoothly with a high natural polish. Though non-siliceous, there is more than the usual dulling of cutters. This species sands easily and takes a good finish.
Drying and Shrinkage: Cabreuva can take some time to dry properly but does have good stability characteristics once dry.
Shrinkage from green to ovendry: radial 3.8%; tangential 6.2%; volumetric 10.0%.
These values are very low for a wood of this high density.
Durability: The heartwood is reported to be highly resistant to attack by decay fungi. Both sapwood and heartwood are highly resistant to preservative treatments.

Flooring, furniture, interior trim, turnery, railroad crossties.
The tree is well known for its yield of balsam used in perfumes.
General Characteristics: Heartwood reddish brown becoming deep red or somewhat purplish upon exposure;
fairly uniform to striped;
sharply demarcated from the white sapwood.
Luster medium to high;
texture medium;
grain is typically interlocked;
without distinctive taste, but may have a pleasant spicy scent.
