In compared to MDF, Chipboard, and other plywood alternatives, OSB compromises a smooth surface for improved mechanical performance by employing longer strands of wood.

The commercial designation OSB/3 is derived from the technical class designated in BS EN 300 for ‘load-bearing boards for usage in humid environments.’ In this case, humid means situations where boards are shielded from external elements yet moisture content might grow due to humidity.
