The 24 Hour Water Test of Cabinet grade plywood and Industrial grade particle board

Check out the image below. On the left is a cabinet grade plywood. On the right is Industrial grade (45#) particle board. We place both samples in an inch of water with red food dye for 24 hours.

As you can see the plywood has delaminated and the water has wicked far up into the board. The industrial grade particle board has swelled slightly but shows much less damage. Now, we don’t recommend you soak your cabinets in water for 24 hours. If however it does happen, modern particle boards hold up better than plywood.
