C grade 4x8 plywood is the cheapest option with clear knots up to 3 inches wide. The surface is distorted with tree cores and patterns. Lastly, for hardwood 4x8 treated plywood, the grading system is represented by A1 and D4, which is the highest and lowest quality, respectively. Both A grade and D4 are useful in interior decors and demanding tasks. Marine plywood 4x8 is for cisterns, boat hulls, and decking. While grades C and D1 will perform basic insulation, and due to their low price, the demand for medium quality 4x8 plywood is higher.
