Re: Dedicated thread for advantech
> disappointed to find it was just wafer board
That's rather like comparing engineered boards like Trex to particleboard. They are similar in concept, but the amount of the plastic/resin in Trex is much higher, and the outdoor performance is much different.
Advantech has a higher resin content that ordinary OSB (waferboard). Its performance in an outdoor environment is certainly improved compared to OSB.
However, Advantech, like ordinary OSB, is a product that the manufacturer expects to be used in a not exposed to weather location.
