MR grade plywood refers to moisture resistant plywood, this type of plywood is the most widely used plywood and is often used to make common furniture including chairs, tables, wardrobes etc. thus it is also known as commercial grade plywood. Remember while this plywood can resist a certain extent of moisture, it should not be for surfaces that are directly or consistently exposed to water.

1.3.2 Boiling Water Resistant (BWR grade) Plywood

BWR grade plywood refers to boiling water resistant plywood, this grade of plywood uses the same components that are used for making waterproof plywood but it is not 100% waterproof as BWP grade plywood, this is used for surfaces that are moderately exposed to water such as outdoor furniture, etc.

BWP grade plywood refers to boiling water proof plywood, this plywood is 100% waterproof and is used for furnishing places that are constantly exposed to water, such as bathrooms, kitchens, etc. This type of plywood is also used for marine applications such as boats and ships and thus it is commonly known as marine grade plywood.
