Ipe Aftercare KitIpe Aftercare Kit

If you want to preserve the original color...

Ipé is naturally a uniform brown color. Keep in mind that the original color of all woods will gray out with time when placed outdoors and exposed to ultra violet rays (UV). This is a function of UV light bleaching the wood over time.

If you want to preserve the original color of our Ipé, we recommend using the Ipé Aftercare Kit.

This 2-step kit contains a packet of Penofin Pro-Tech Brightener and a quart can of Penofin Verde Oil Finish (this is enough finish to cover approximate 60-120 square feet of wood surface, or the equivalent of 1-2 Amber Beechworth sets).

The kit is intended for furniture that has been slightly grayed-out in the weather, and will effectively treat the wood surface and restore the original color.

Please note: the Ipé Aftercare Kit should only be used after the original finish begins to lighten in color (after approximately 2-3 months of outdoor exposure depending on your local weather conditions).

Ipé Cleaner

If your furniture has completely grayed out...

If you have allowed your furniture to completely gray out, or if the wood surface has become heavily stained with water spots or food stains, it is recommended that you also clean the wood surface with Ipé Cleaner. First apply Ipé Cleaner, then rinse with clean water and allow to completely dry. Finally apply Penofin Verde to return and preserve the brown color.

Weathered Ipe

The No Maintenance Weathered Look

Jensen Ipé furniture can be left outside all year long —in any conditions, and remain functional for years to come with no maintenance whatsoever (cushions should be kept indoors during inclement weather).

However, wood is a natural material subject to changes in the environment. The look and feel of natural wood is part of the appeal of owning wood garden furniture. Although Ipé is naturally stable, small checks in the wood surface may appear if the furniture is placed in dry or sunny environments. Superficial checking in no way affects the structural integrity and longevity of your furniture. In full sun, Ipé will naturally-weather to a grayish-silver color.

In some cases the natural resins contained in the Ipe wood, might stain light colored surfaces (composite decking, vinyl, linoleum, carpets etc).  Jensen Leisure Furniture recommends the use of furniture glides to minimize the risk of staining.


Argento Care & Maintenance

Argento Care and Maintenance

The Argento finish was designed to be “low maintenance”, meaning that the finish is designed to continue to gray-out as it weathers, closely approximating the original gray appearance needing no maintenance whatsoever.

If however, the wood surface becomes dirty or stained with outdoor use, here are some recommendations for returning the finish to a clean gray condition using the Argento Aftercare product. Please note that the Argento Aftercare will not restore the original gray finish color. To restore the original gray finish color on sanded or bare Roble wood please use the Argento Touchup Kit.

For complete Argento care and maintenance instructions, please view the Argento Care and Maintenance pdf.
