Oriented strand board (OSB) is a tough engineered wood panel product. It is formed by layering strands of wood in specific orientations and then bonding the layers with a resin. It meets the same performance standards as plywood, but it is more cost-effective.
OSB benefits by being strong and durable, with no knots or voids. It can be sanded and is easy to fix- with applications ranging from packaging, flooring , roofing. Hoarding, timber frame & general site use. OSB has excellent moisture tolerance and is much less susceptible to the stress related problems of plywood, such as warping and ply separation.
