What’s your purpose?

IIf you are selecting plywood for your bathroom door, you should go ahead with marine-grade plywoods, which can resist exposure to water for a very long period of time. So make sure you know what grade of plywood works best for your purpose.

Check the ISI Mark

A product bearing the ISI mark verifies that it complies with the Indian standard of quality, which is set by the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS).

A physical test

Apart from the certificates, you can check yourself on the plywood to detect if there are any flaws. Make sure the plywood has no bumps on the surface and all the edges have a uniform thickness. You can also knock on the plywood sheets to detect whether there are any hollow spaces.

When a product is expensive, it doesn't mean that it is of good quality. Take matters into your hands and get the best quality product for the price you pay.
