I'm trying to compare the quality of these two marine plywoods from two different suppliers. Is it possible to tell from the descriptions as to which is the better quality? That is, in terms of being water repellent.

Thanks.

Marine MTCS (PEFC) BS1088 part1 2003 Marine Grade CE2+ E1 EN636-3 EN314-2 Class 3

BS1088, KOMO Class ‘A’, ‘C’ and Lloyds certified. (Guaranteed 25 years)

I've not heard of *Komo*, it looks like it may be peculiar to this manufacturer, (but I can't be sure of that).

The EN numbers are the modern classifications and you can see the various grades here:- http://apawood-europe.org/official-guid ... standards/

Take your time and be sure to check the full number, i.e. *EN314-2 Class3* - it makes a difference compared to Class 2 for example.

If it's called marine ply however it should be up to pretty much anything - do you really need marine ply or would WBP ply be sufficient? Marine ply is horrendously expensive.

I only need a fairly small section to go into an angled corner at the end of a bath. Water will potentially fall onto this section from the shower. So I think if I use marine ply, waterproof matt then tile it with the wall tiles then it should be fine.
