It is not waterproof:

It's the most common misconception about MR grade plywood that it is waterproof. If you're looking for waterproof property in MR grade, you are sure to be disappointed because the full form of MR in MR grade plywood is moisture-resistant, meaning it can resist moisture with ease. However, it can only resist moisture and not water. Because of its moisture-resistant property, MR grade plywood is the most preferred kind of plywood in hot and humid conditions, mainly in tropical areas. CenturyPly offers a wide range of products in both MR grade and BWP (Boiling Water Proof) grade to meet your requirements.

Boiling waterproof plywood or boiling water-resistant plywood is far from MR grade plywood as these have a huge threshold for water exposure. This is the reason why they are commonly used in kitchens and bathrooms where more water-related activities are undertaken.

It is termite and borer resistant

Owing to the chemical treatment that good plywood companies use in making this plywood, MR grade plywood is made to resist termite and borer to a huge extent.

It is highly durable

Plywood with more number of plies has longer chances to sustain the wear and tear that occurs due to daily usage. MR grade plywood is made up of superior quality hardwood timber that gives it optimum strength and durability, best suited for commercial or residential use.

These factors about MR grade plywood make it the number one choice for homeowners and architects. Brands like CenturyPly use the GLP formula or glue line protection formula as a preservative to protect the plywood from borer and termite. Good adhesion of plies is also important to keep plywood going for a long period of time.
