What are the advantages of OSB?

For various common applications of OSB. Plywood was previously chosen. OSB has thus taken over the use of plywood in certain areas. This is mainly due to the advantages of OSB over plywood or triplex. For example, twice as much energy is used in the production of plywoaod as in the production of OSB, making OSB a more sustainable and cheaper choice. OSB also has better insulating properties compared with plywood. Plywood has a much more even appearance, but for many construction applications this does not play a role. OSB is often used in these applications.
