What Is MR Grade Plywood?
Moisture-resistant plywood is known as MR grade plywood. This sort of MR grade plywood is superior than normal plywood because of its moisture resistance and long working life.However, in India, MR grade plywood is often referred to as Commercial grade plywood.
The following are the key characteristics of MR grade plywood.
- MR grade plywood is an interior grade plywood that can be used indoors.
- The label MR (moisture resistant) can be misleading in this context. Customers should keep in mind, however, that “moisture resistant” does not indicate “waterproof.” It simply means that the plywood can withstand humidity and wetness.
- The most prevalent application for MR grade plywood is the manufacture of home and office furniture. Customers looking for waterproof plywood for their furniture can choose BWR grade plywood, which is waterproof and constructed with phenolic resins. BWR grade ply is more expensive than Commercial MR grade ply, but it is excellent for manufacturing furniture that will become wet, such as kitchen cabinets.
