BB has two B grade faces
CD has a C grade face and a D grade back

B High quality surface suitable for painting
S High quality surface suitable for painting
C Non appearance grade with a solid face, not meant to look attractive
D Low appearance grade with permitted defects
PG Non-structural, for packing use, un-sanded rough appearance
