Moisture Matters: Selecting the Ply Based on Purpose

Examine the mysteries of why plywood resists moisture and really get to the secret of the product. Below are listed some of the most common types you may run across.

Moisture Resistant (MR) Plywood: Your wallet-friendly champion for dry areas like bedrooms and living rooms.

Boiling Water Resistant (BWR) Plywood: Another term for this kind of plywood is ‘Commercial Plywood,’ which is more immune to moisture than the above two and can, therefore, be used for kitchen and utility room cabinets and vanities other than bathrooms.

Boiling Water Proof (BWP) Plywood, another term for Marine Plywood: The undoubted king of enduring moisture, ideal for bathrooms, laundry areas, and general zones of splash.

Beyond Basics: Exploring Specialty Plywood Options

For those seeking unique design elements, delve into the world of specialty plywood:

Gurjan Plywood: It’s only known for the fine strength and beautiful grain of the wood; therefore, Gurjan plywood is a favorite to make the features and best quality of furniture.

Fire-Retardant Plywood: For an area where the biggest consideration is safety, among others, this should be put in mind, particularly for spaces such as kitchens, Fire-retardant plywood are best.

Flexible Plywood: Thinking about making curves and organic shapes? The answer to your idea is a Flexible Plywood sheet, suitable for modern builds of furniture or statement headboards.

Pro tip: Plywood sheets come in different types of grades. In grading, one considers the quality of the veneer (outer wood layer). The area in your design that’s seen and exposed to view might be rougher in one area or another because it was made from high-grade plywood. The knowledge of resistance levels to moisture and the specialty available gives him the peace of mind in decision-making on the type of plywood to take for the completion of the interior design. As always, the right sheet of plywood will guarantee you not only beautiful and long-lasting results but also meet your needs in specific areas. So, unleash your inner designer and get ready to create something truly ply-tastic!
