This isn’t the only qualification that it conquers, it has the top-notch quality to make robust products. IS 710 is the IS grade of marine plywood in India. In layman language, Marine plywood is generally known as BWP or boiling waterproof plywood.
Marine plywood is widely used in manufacturing of boats and ships. These ship are exposed to water for a long time and hence require tremendous resistance to water. Hence, marine plywood is able to withstand long exposure to water. Likewise, marine plywood is used  in making furniture for bathrooms and kitchens and other places that are frequently exposed to water.
BWP is a robust material that is made of three or more thin sheets of wood that are called veneers. The layers of the wood are laid with the grain at right angles to the next layer.
Generally, Phenolic glue is used in BWP plywood as it can go without delamination for 72 hours in boiling water. As a result, they can sometimes be considered as permanent adhesives. 

As compared to the moisture-resistant variant- commercial plywood, marine grade plywood is generally twice as expensive. The price of the sheets differs widely due to the quality of resin and timber used to manufacture them. The utility of marine plywood is vast, this affects the marine plywood price in the plywood industry.
Some of the important features of BWP Plywood is summed up as follows:

The plywood gets anti-wrap properties through specific stress-relieving treatment. It makes it dimensionally well-balanced in dry and wet conditions.
It is one of the high resistance to boiling water, dry heat, rough weather, moisture, and other climatic conditions which makes it ideal to use in boat and shipbuilding. 
The plywood is chemically treated with selected preservatives that can prevent termites and pests.

Marine Plywood is sometimes referred as Waterproof plywood which gives the impression that it will remain intact in water forever. This is false. Furniture like table, chair, made of Marine plywood may reduce its shine and durability in continued water, specially in rainwater.

Does marine plywood cause cancer?
Formaldehyde is an important substance used in manufacturing of  industrial resins and adhesives for bonding of plywood. Most of the plywood that we come across is bonded with adhesives containing either Formaldehyde, i.e., Phenol-Formaldehyde, or Urea Formaldehyde. â€¨Plywood used in furniture emits formaldehyde and prolonged exposure to this causes negative impact on human body. However with the addition of chemicals, the emission of formaldehyde in these plywood can be controlled in consideration with the CARB and EPA regulations. IF the formaldehyde emission is less than 3mg/ 100gm the emission level is at E0. IF the formaldehyde emission is between 8mg/ 100gm and 3mg/ 100 gm the emission level is at E1. IF the formaldehyde emission is between 8mg/ 100gm and 30mg/ 100gm the emission level is at E1. Regency Club Plus and Regency Club are both marine grade plywood and comply with E0 emission levels.
