BWP (Boiling Water Proof) and BWR ( Boiling Water Resistance) are the 2 major marine grade plywood. Since both are resistance to boiling water they are often used in kitchen cabinets, where the contact of water is high. This blog is regarding the benefits of BWP and BWR.
BOILING WATERPROOF PLYWOOD (BWP)
BWP plywood stands foe weather and boiling proof. They are considered as a marine grade plywood. BWP can be bared to humidity and moisture for a longer time without delamination. Gluing up 3 to 4 layers of veneer can make BWP plywood. Phenolic glue is the one that is used to make the sheets together in BWP.
BENEFITS OF BWP PLYWOOD
- BWP can withstand a high-moisture environment.
- The plywood sometimes gets anti-warp properties through certain treatments, which results in the strength of plywood in both wet and dry conditions throughout life.
- BWP is termite and pest resistance, which makes the quality of the product higher and also the best for interiors.
- This plywood is best for all-weather conditions and these properties made to build boats and ships.
BOILING WATER RESISTANCE (BWR)
BWR is called Boiling water resistance , it is highly resistant to water. They are mainly used for home furnishing, office as well as outdoors. Here the plywood is made of phenolic resins.
BENEFITS OF BWR PLYWOOD
- It is exterior grade plywood, which can be used indoors, outdoors, and also for a semi-outdoor purpose.
- It is made up of phenolic resins and phenol-formaldehyde Adhesive.
- BWR can be used in kitchen cabinets, where the contact of water is high. Since, they are highly resistant to water than other plywood like MR, etc.
- BWR has zero surface core gaps.
- They are warp free plywood with super-strong bonding’s.
- The most important benefit of BWR is, they are termite resistant.
