Plywood Grades

Plywood is graded in various grades

0.8mm, 1mm, 1.5mm & 2mm will normally be BR/BR

BR/BR grade will normally have more colour variance and mineral streaks along with some small solid and a limited number of open knots.

3mm is available in B/BB and BB/BB grade

B/BB grade

On one side you should expect the grade shows the natural look of the wood. There will be changes in colour that show the grain pattern. Sound, smooth knots are allowed and these will typically be under 15mm to 35mm in diameter (depending on the countries grading rules). The surface should normally be free from open knots and plugs. The material should be suitable for paint / stain or a lacquered finish.

On the other side it should be similar to B grade material, though knots would typically not exceed 7mm to 8mm in diameter. It shows the natural look of the wood and will show natural colour variations, it may also have repairs (plugs) on the surface described as ‘oval’ or ‘butterfly’ dependant on manufacturer

BB/BB

BB/BB should be similar to B grade material, though knots would typically not exceed 7mm to 8mm in diameter. It shows the natural look of the wood and will show natural colour variations, it may also have repairs (plugs) on the surface described as ‘oval’ or ‘butterfly’ dependant on manufacturer, plugs maybe on both sides of the material as required
