Plywood vs. Composite Sub-Floor Material
Composites are far more available, less costly, and will move less in “normal” moisture conditions due to the large amount of non-organic adhesive. Lots of plastic adhesive keeps expansion to a minimum with ambient moisture levels so I agree with what you are hearing. However in real “wetting” or submersion circumstances both plywood and composites expand substantially, I don’t believe composites shrink back to the original dimension as much as plywood after they dry.
I still like plywood better but it will cost a good bit more.
