The Common Man’s Guide to Buying Plywood in India

Plywood is a special kind of wood that is being widely used for making furniture owing to a number of advantages over traditional wood. Plywood, coming in the form of a long board, is manufactured by assembling multiple veneers to get uniform strength all across the board. Also, plywood is easy to carve and can be used to create furniture with ease and convenience and affordably without suffering any strength issues. 

There are a number of plywood manufacturers that offer a variety of high-quality plywood products in different specifications, each with specific application and advantages. Before buying plywood, one must clearly identify the application and use of plywood for the best results. The different varieties available in India include softwood, decorative, hardwood, fire retardant, pressure treated, moisture resistant, marine grade, sign grade, etc. While softwood is used mainly for construction and industrial purposes, moisture-resistant plywood, are ideal for furniture and interior work.  Similarly, boiling water resistant grade plywood is ideal for furniture and cabinets that are prone to getting wet such as kitchen cabinets, kitchen furniture, outdoor furniture, bathroom cabinets etc. 

Also, for better protection of furniture over long periods, it is better to opt for laminate plywood for furniture construction. Laminate plywood increases the life of furniture by protecting the surface from damage due to water owing to protective laminated layer. Though being costlier than normal plywood, they increase the life of the home furniture. 

While buying plywood in India, one must keep the following tips in mind: 

  • IS:303 mark should be checked before buying plywood for interior and exterior furniture. But one must ensure that plywood for exterior furniture must also be marked with BWR or BWP mark. 
  • One must choose hardwood plywood and check for 100% hardwood ply mark while buying a plywood board. Being stronger than softwood, hardwood plywood is manufactured by using high-quality Gurjan wood. Also, 100% mark ensures that the complete board including the core and surface is manufactured using only hardwood that offers the greater durability of furniture. 
  • Get an idea about the thickness and size of plywood required beforehand for different furniture pieces as the cost directly depends on the thickness of plywood. 
  • Branded plywood is significantly costlier than unbranded boards. However, branded plywood comes with various benefits over unbranded ones. One must keep in mind his/her needs and budget before finalizing on plywood purchase.
