Types of high grade plywood:

There are a variety of ways in which plywood is classified and these classifications are usually based on the different aspects of plywood such as the wood used, the number of plies it has, its suitability for indoor and outdoor use, its grading as per quality specifications, and its intended uses.

In this article we will have a detailed look at the different types of plywood available.

Interior and Exterior Grade plywood

As the names suggest, interior grade plywood is meant for indoor use, while exterior grade is waterproof and can be used outdoors. The most common type of plywood that is used for making furniture for our homes and offices is Commercial plywood (which is Interior MR grade). The acronym ‘MR’ stands for ‘Moisture resistant’.

BWP (Boiling Water Proof)or BWR (Boiling Water Resistant) plywoods are called exterior grade plywoods. They are made using phenolic resins and are adequately waterproof.

Marine Plywood

Marine Plywood is of a superior quality compared to Commercial ply and it is also costs a lot more. It is not usually used for indoor applications such as for making furniture. It is rather used for applications such as for boat building and other industrial uses where the plywood is bound to get a prolonged exposure to water.

For making furniture, commercial plywood is usually sufficient.(BWP/BWR resist water better than MR types. So for kitchen furniture using BWP/BWR is quite common). For furniture that is unlikely to get wet, MR grade ply is usually good enough.

Types of plywood based on the type of wood used

Generally hardwood is used for making plywood, because it is stronger and more durable, however some manufacturers may also use softwood for making lower cost plywoods. Still other manufacturers can use a combination of both woods, with some wood veneers of hardwood and others of softwood.

Hardwood Plywood

For example made from teak wood, or gurjan wood or birch wood. If all the veneers used in making the plywood have been obtained from hardwood trees it will be termed as 100% hardwood plywood and its cost will be higher.

Softwood Plywood

For example made from woods like cedar, SPF (Spruce-Pine-Fir) or Mango wood.

Categorization based on the particular wood (tree) used in its making.

For example: Gurjan plywood, redwood plywood

More terminology and usage based classifications

MR grade: Moisture Resistant

The most common type of plywood used for indoor furniture. Note that moisture resistant does not mean water proof. It only means that the plywood can resist a certain amount of humidity or dampness.

BWR and BWP grades

The BWP (Boiling Water proof) grade is generally used to indicate grade of External grade blockboards (which are different from plywood and consist of blocks of softwood at the core) and BWR (Boiling Water Resistant) grade is used to indicate External grade plywood. Both these naming conventions BWP and BWR mean almost the same thing in terms of quality. Such types of plywood can be called adequately water-proof for most furniture requirements.

Flexible Plywood:

Also called ‘flexi ply’ in India. In some countries such as US, it is also known by another name ‘bendy ply’. This type of plywood is not stiff and can be easily rolled up. Useful for creating rounded shapes in furniture.

FR grade: Fire Retardant

Used in places where fire risks have to be reduced such as in the case of public theatres, malls or shopping complexes, restaurant kitchens and the like. The surface of this type of plywood is treated with chemicals that delay the burning process of wood (hence called fire retardant).

Concrete Shuttering Plywood

Used in building construction work to create the wooden moulds into which concrete will be case. Hence it is called concrete shuttering plywood. It can be reused several times before being discarded or used for other purposes.

Film-faced shuttering plywood has a shiny phenolic film over the surface, so that the concrete does not stick to the plywood, and the dampness does not damage the ply.
