The E0 specification refers to the lowest level of formaldehyde emission, which is less than or equal to 0.5mg/l. This signifies the plywood is a safer and healthier option for your interiors.

Recognizing fake plywood brands can be challenging, but here are some tips to help you identify them:

  1. Check for the brand name and logo properly.
  2. Inspect the quality of the plywood, such as cracks, warping, or unevenness in the surface.
  3. Look for the certification marks like the Bureau of Indian Standards (BIS), which indicates that the product meets the required quality standards.
  4. Verify the source of purchase: buy plywood only from authorised dealers and stores. Unscrupulous sellers may sell fake plywood brands at lower prices to attract customers, so it is important to do your research and only purchase from reliable sources.
  5. Check online reviews of the plywood brand and seller to see what other customers are saying. If the reviews are overwhelmingly negative or suspicious, it could be a sign of a fake brand.
  6. Check the price; if it seems too good to be true, it probably is. Fake plywood brands are often sold at much lower rates than genuine brands.

By following these tips, you can minimise the risk of purchasing fake plywood brands and ensure that you get a high-quality product.

Durable homes need a durable foundation.

A customer should never settle for less when it comes to building their dream home or comfort space. Sylvan Ply assures customers of high-grade products with a lifetime promise of durability on select products.

It would be in your best interest if you take a look at the IS certification stamps on the plywood. Ask the dealer or interior designer to guide you through the process.

The Anti Termite Borer Solution from Sylvan Ply is path-breaking in its own way. It not only prevents termites and borers from infesting your space, it ensures that they are eliminated completely as well. During the manufacturing process of our plywood, we subject it to chemical treatment that effectively deters termites and borers. Our objective is to safeguard your furniture and home from any possible harm caused by all things deadly.

Sylvan Ply’s Fireguard Technology is a game-changer in the plywood industry, offering the best firefighting solution for customers across India. We use strong fire-retardant chemicals, applied under pressure and as a surface coating, to create the “Fireguard” property in our plywood. Certified with IS:5509, the fire-resistant properties reduce smoke generation, controls flame spread and gives leeway for evacuation in case of a fire emergency.

The Sylvan Exclusive range includes our top four products: Z Plus Premium Plus, Z Plus Premium, Elite Plus and Premium Club.

Sylvan Ply’s main superpowers are Hydra Shield, Fireguard Technology, ATBS, PowerSeal Adhesive, Microbe Shield, Mirror Smooth Surface, Dual Calibration and Weather Defence.

Generally, 16 mm and 18 mm plywood are used for furniture and other decorative purposes, but it ultimately depends on your usage. You can purchase such plywood according to your needs.

No; on the contrary, Plywood is stronger than MDF because:

Plywood is more durable, being made from multiple layers of wood veneer.

It won't soak up liquids and water easily and so is less susceptible to damage.

The high-density and fibrous layers of wood veneer make it a very strong building material with high-impact resistance.

Both are equally good and strong and can be used for different purposes. Plywood is used in making furniture, cabinets, roofing, and flooring. On the other hand, Blockboard is used for building long bookshelves, settees, lengthy wall panels, single and double beds, tables, and benches.

Not all plywood is waterproof, but features some sort of water-resistance. You must always look at the correct IS certification marks, in this case IS:710. At Sylvan Ply, we offer quality plywood that is both waterproof and water-resistant. So, you can choose our plywood for your furniture, flooring, roofing, kitchen cabinets and other needs.

Sylvan Ply is available in various sizes and can be used for different purposes. Every plywood from Sylvan Ply is the best for that specific project at any given price point.

Plywood is one of the best alternatives to MDF. Whether you want to make kitchen cabinets, bookshelves, or any other furniture, plywood is the right choice.

BWP and BWRare government grading standardsto differentiate each product. BWP (boiling water proof) is used to grade ply and blockboards whereas
 BWR (boiling water resistant) grade is given to manufacturing plywood.

Waterproof plywood offers protection from most kinds of water and liquid damage, and is durable. But non-waterproof plywood, as the name suggests, can get easily damaged and lose shape when exposed to water.

Yes, Sylvan Ply offers 100% termite-proof plywood, which makes them one of the best plywood for your furniture needs.

BWP (boiling water proof) plywood is referred to as marine plywood, which can withstand high-moisture conditions without compromising on its structural integrity.

Blockboards are considered to be the best for making shelves as unlike plywood, they are not made from plies that are glued together but rather from wood blocks that are placed end to end to form its core. In the case of shelves, where the length of furniture matters, blockboards offer better stiffness whereas a plywood sheet of considerable length has a tende1ncy to sag down in the middle.

Both Ply and Blockboard are the best choices for making any desired furniture. You can check all the details of Sylvan Ply blockboards on our website.

In order to make furniture more stable and comfortable, you can use good quality ply and blockboards. You can refer to Sylvan Ply blockboards for better stability of your furniture.

No, more weight does not imply that the plywood is stronger. The raw materials used and the production processes followed in making the plywood matters the most.

  • Purpose of use (furniture, construction, etc.)
  • Sustainability and eco-friendliness
  • Brand reputation and certifications
  • Right plywood grade with genuine IS certifications
  • Thickness of the plywood
  • Type of wood used for core and face
  • Adhesive used in the bonding process
  • Moisture resistance (BWR, BWP or MR)
  • Nail and Screw holding capacity
  • Formaldehyde emission levels
  • Fire-retardant properties
  • Cost and budget constraints

The followings are some characteristics of high-grade plywood that you can use as a checklist when choosing one for yourself:

  • Wood Face Veneer
  • Smooth Surface
  • ISI Mark
  • Consistent Thickness
  • No Gap Between Layers

Typically for indoor use, MR (moisture resistant) and BWR (boiling water resistant) are used. BWP (boiling water proof) and other plywood are used for Kitchen and outdoor purposes.

Structural Grade plywood is the strongest among all if you are looking for a sturdy and durable base for your furniture. The certification for structural grade plywood is IS: 10701.

Local, unbranded plywood might seem like a cost-effective idea at first, but it won’t last you in the long run. Branded plywood, on the other hand, ensures peace of mind and quality assurance. With a range of waterproof, fireproof and termite-proof plywood, Sylvan Ply leaves you spoilt for choice.

For internal furnishing, Sylvan Ply offers a range of MR (moisture resistant) and BWR (boiling water resistant) plywood that provides longevity and stability.

Plywood’s high tensile strength is greater than that of natural wood, making it the first choice for customers. You should consider Plywood because it is:


Ideal for adding stability to modular structures



100% Borer and Termite-proof

Sylvan Ply is a name synonymous with authenticity and reliability. Having created a niche for ourselves in the plywood market, we have been offering consumers only the finest crafted products curated from superior-quality raw materials.

Plywood is the compilation of wooden layers, assembled and bonded together in a flat sheet, also known as veneer. Timber, on the other hand, is the fallen wood processed for construction purposes.

Wood warping is a common phenomenon where the product undergoes deformity due to moisture and temperature fluctuations. The first step to prevent wood warping is locating its underlying cause. To prevent Wood Warping, try out the following methods:

Use of Sealant: applying a layer of paint, stain or protective sealant to the wood can protect it against the moisture.

Store wood in a cool and dry place.

Acclimating the wood to the destination prior to its use.

Avoid stacking the wood one above the other; lay it flat.

However, even the slightest warping of the wood can be damaging to structures in the long run. Hence, no percentage of warping is healthy for plywood. For stronger structures, it is advisable to purchase Sylvan Plywood which are crafted in a layered veneer preventing wood warping.

Warping is a common phenomenon of wood under extreme temperatures. Wood warping is not limited to any dimension of 6mm and 9mm plywood but varies on the quality.

However, Sylvan Ply’s 6mm and 9mm plywood are crafted in a cross-layered veneered panel to provide tensile strength reducing the risk of wood warping.

Termites eat plywood, making deep burrows inside. They have the ability to destroy any furniture by burrowing in them. You can choose to spray anti-borer spray on the affected area of the plywood. However, it is advisable to invest in an anti-termite and borer resistant plywood for durable structures.

The main difference between termite and borer attacks is that borers are present inside the wood creating pinhole-like structures, whereas, termites attack the wood from outside, deforming it in the process.

For better durability, it is recommended you invest in weather-resistant and anti-corrosion plywood. Sylvan Ply, a game changer in the plywood manufacturing industry, has a market-leading portfolio of high-grade plywood with innovative features. Check our product page for more information: https://sylvanply.com/plywood-blockboard/.

Marine grade/BWP/BWR Plywood is a new innovative product that is highly water-resistant, preventing moisture absorption for lifelong structures.

Plywood is available in four grades and types. A-Grade plywood has a smoother surface and is of the highest quality. However, in most cases, bad appearance is synonymous with bad quality. A superior-quality product will have layers of veneer that are aesthetic and enhance your spaces. For a premium range of plywood,
 check our product page: https://sylvanply.com/plywood-blockboard/.

The coloured layers of a plywood denote more layering that adds strength to the product. The final colour depends on the type of plywood you choose for your furniture.

Sylvan Ply is regarded as one of the finest plywood door brands in India owing to superior quality plywood, unmatched quality and wide range. Our plywood doors feature lifetime warranty and are 100% infestation-resistant too.

BWP (Boiling Water Proof) plywood is considered the best plywood for cabinets due to its ability to withstand moisture and humidity. The certification for it is IS:710. It is designed to resist delamination and warping even when exposed to water or damp conditions, making it a durable and long-lasting choice for cabinet construction.

BWR (boiling water resistant) and BWP (boiling water proof) plywood is often used in the manufacturing of furniture that has to be strong and resistant to water damage, ideally for kitchens. Whereas, MR-grade stands for moisture-resistant Plywood. MR Commercial plywood is recommended to be used in hot, humid climates as they can resist moisture but are not water-proof. This type of plywood can be used to make bedroom furniture.

Plywood that has been chemically treated to be less flammable and to slow down the spread of fire is known as “fire-retardant plywood.” Since fire safety is of key importance, these are frequently used in commercial buildings as well as for home interiors. Fire-retardant Sylvan plywood not only guarantees fire safety but is also waterproof.

BWR (boiling water resistant) plywood is ideal for modular kitchens due to superior resistance to moisture and water damage. These types of plywood offer zero surface core gaps, extreme strong bonding, and no warping, making them suitable for kitchen cabinets, shelves and furniture. Sylvan BWR Plywood is made using an in-house phenol formaldehyde adhesive, which lends it high durability and strength to withstand continued heavy usage.

The flooring area that needs replacement will depend on the severity and extent of the damage. Drop in your queries related to floor replacement and pricing at:  https://sylvanply.com/contact-us/ or email:  reach@sylvanply.com.


Depending on your purpose, both Plywood and Blockboard are best in their own ways, catering to different requirements and applications.

Z Plus Premium Plywood is a common choice for ceilings, ship flooring, cooling towers, and wall panelling applications. Z Plus Blockboards are preferred for partitions, shutters, racks, and shelves applications.

Blockboards are mainly utilised for building long bookshelves, cabinets, single and double beds, tables, settees, benches, and lengthy wall panels.
Sylvan Ply offers various types of blockboards including BLU BWP Blockboard, BLU MR Blockboard, Z Plus Premium Blockboard, etc.

At Sylvan Ply, you can find blockboards of 16mm, 19mm and 25mm sizes.

Blockboards are the first choice for long bookshelves since they offer more rigidity owing to their composition and unlike long sheets of ply, don’t tend to sag in the middle.
Yes, Sylvan Ply provides eco-friendly blockboards that are durable and sustainable.
Blockboards come in a variety of sizes and qualities; so does Plywood. Both offer ample strength and durability for their respective applications.
Blockboards are considered to be the best for your furniture because of their composition.

Blockboard is manufactured by joining a core made of rectangular blocks of softwood or hardwood between two veneer panels using an adhesive. The blocks are placed edge-to-edge and sandwiched between the veneers; then the entire assembly is pressed and cured under heat and pressure to create a strong and stable panel.


Flush Doors

Different types of plywood are used in flush doors. Every plywood has its unique purpose and specifications. You can select the perfect plywood from our ‘Products’ page according to your needs.
Yes, plywood is used for doors to provide better stability, strength, and durability.
The thickness of plywood varies for doors. One can choose 30mm, 32mm, 35mm, 38mm, 40mm or even 45mm plywood for doors. It all depends on your usage.
Yes, Sylvan Ply offers waterproof plywood for doors as well. The certification for water resistant flush doors is IS:303.
Flush doors are the best as they provide better strength and stability that increase the durability of the door.
Flush doors are a type of interior door that are characterised by their smooth and flat surface, which is created by using a single sheet of plywood or MDF (medium-density fibreboard) over a hollow or solid core. Flush doors are typically used for interior applications such as bedrooms, bathrooms, and closets, and can be made in a variety of sizes to fit any space.
Plywood is the best material for bedroom doors as they are made from high-density timber, and are water and termite proof.

 the exact details, contact us at: +91- 9073685001.

Every timber has its own USP and caters to that specific need. So, you should buy plywood according to your requirements and budget.

You can opt for USA Pine, New Zealand Pine, Indonesian Sal and Malaysian timber as viable alternatives for Gurjan.

Sylvan Ply offers different types of timber, including South American, USA Pine, New Zealand Pine, Indonesian Sal, and Malaysian in plywood making.

Twisting: Twisting occurs when the wood fibres spiral around the length of the board, causing it to appear twisted or rotated.

Bending: Bending is the process of changing the shape of wood along its length to create curves or angles. This can be achieved using steam or other techniques.

Warping: Warping occurs when a board or piece of wood changes shape due to changes in moisture content or uneven drying.

Plywood is the compilation of wooden layers, assembled and bonded together in a flat sheet, also known as veneer. Timber, on the other hand, is the fallen wood processed for construction purposes.

Wall Panels

Wall panels are flat pieces of material made of solid wood or timber that are roughly square or    rectangular in shape and serve as an aesthetic wall covering.

Wall panels that are made out of natural wood are considered to be the best, as they can be made to retain their original warm and aesthetic look. Sylvan panels are made with high-quality imported decorative pinewood, which itself has a beautiful comforting factor and lends a modern, stylish look to your space.

Wooden panels have insulating properties, keeping your space cool in the summer and warm in the winter. You will usually find hot sauna rooms built on such panelling.

Wall panels are versatile and can be used both indoors and outdoors. You can easily install them on the exterior of the house, on ceilings, attics, store rooms, or interior walls. In fact, wall panels give your home an aesthetic look when put up on the outside.

Both of them are good options, but the final decision will boil down to pricing, theme of the space and time required for installation. For durable and easy-to-maintain surfaces, opt for wood panelling; whereas, if you aim to have fire-resistant walls and want cost-friendly options, drywall is the best pick.

Sylvan Panels can be easily installed using the tongue-and-groove method. Two pieces or edges are joined to fit together, end-to-end. This installation method is so easy that anyone with decent wood crafting skills can attempt it themselves. This end-coordinating framework saves time in estimating, sawing and installing. One can save around 20% in labour cost and 20%
in material waste.

Modular Ply/ Blockboard

Give your modern homes the gift of premium Sylvan Modular Ply. Enhance the visual appeal of your interiors with curated modular kitchen spaces or craft your dream furniture. With a plethora of customisation options offering you greater flexibility, the possibilities are endless.

Designed for modern kitchens, these are the preferred choice for durable kitchen furniture. Modular blockboards are chemically treated for added strength and feature 100% borer and termite-proofing, heat-resistance, and waterproofing.

The difference between Modular Premium Ply and Blockboard is solely based on the application of the product. Modular Premium Ply is used to make home furniture and kitchen furniture. On the other hand, Modular Premium Blockboard is used for kitchen furniture applications.

Modular Premium Ply and Premium Blockboard feature imported high-density timber and calibrated composed core for smooth finishes. Both are good options but keep in mind that modular ply is apt for furniture and kitchen furniture, whereas modular blockboard is used for kitchen furniture only. 

Modular Premium Waterproof Plywood can be used for modern furniture making and kitchen furniture. Sylvan Ply’s range of modular plys are suitable for multiple applications in your kitchen and around your home.

To enhance your modern and modular kitchen spaces, you can use either Modular Ply or Blockboard. With USPs like anti-infestation, 100% waterproofing, high-density timber and more, both add flair to your kitchen spaces.
