Can you use plywood for decking? Plywood decking is a great choice as an alternative to regular boards as long as the right plywood is used. Normal plywood is only four or five layers of wood and is bonded together by a basic epoxy. The only kind of plywood you should use as decking material is marine plywood.

Which ply is good for furniture? However, let us concentrate on the three basic types — MR ply, BWR/BWP ply and Marine ply.

  • Moisture Resistant Plywood, also known as commercial ply by local vendors, is used in interiors extensively.
  • Boiling Water Resistant and Boiling Water Proof Ply is most favoured for interior and exteriors as well.

Is MDF stronger than plywood? MDF stands for medium-density fiberboard, which is an engineered wood composite made up of wood fibers. Both softwood and hardwood are used to manufacture MDF. Generally denser than plywood, this composition createsa stronger material for building. We use a veneer sealant to prevent water damage.
