Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is manufactured from strands, flakes and wafers sliced from small wood logs and compressed with wax and resin binders under extreme heat and pressure. This engineered panel product consists of layered mats; strands oriented along the panel generate the surface layer of this panel, whereas the core layers consist of the cross-oriented flakes.
The OSB is a tough mat-formed panel product due to the uninterrupted wood fibre, the surface layers and the interweaving strands and wafers of the core. The resin binders are water and boil proof, which combines with the layers to form a durable and moisture resistant product.
OSB2 can provide stability for loadbearing purposes under dry conditions and is often seen as the ideal replacement for plywood due to its strength and consistency. For use in dry conditions, structural and non-structural, which would be suitable for temporary site hoarding, boarding up, sheds and packaging.
