I have seen this product at Home Depot, but only in a 3/4" size which I am afraid would be too heavy. If they do not make a thinner product, I think I will be okay with regular plywood.

OSB is about 2 times stronger in shear than plywood. But either will do for a roof.
Did you install a vent or some sort?

Not really, though there is a small air gap. From earlier post;

I cannot forsee how a dome breach would happen much less penetrate the layer of blanket and foil, but the pilot in me always looks for worse case senarios and back-ups. So, I have a small 2 inch x 1/2 inch gap or opening at the intersection of roof and rear gable, under the eave to be out of the elements. Then stuffed with copper wool to kepp out the bugs.

I ended up installing a small (4") round vent in the back of the gable house. I installed it near the top of the peak which is not visible at all. I did it as a "just in case" but probably did not need it.

I bought them and have not installed them.

I burned my oven with the blanket on quite a few times before final close in. I'm thinking if you build the enclosure around the oven before fully cured the vent is a good idea - no sense in keeping all that moisture inside the enclosure. I think I need to drill some holes this weekend.

Thanks
