  7. OSB (Oriented Strand Board)

OSB (Oriented Strand Board) appeared in the market in 1981 as a great mechanical strength for construction. Multiple layers of woodcutting perpendicularly to each other and the alignment of the surface layers’ woods on the length of the wood chips increase the mechanical strength and elasticity of the chipboard.

For the production of OSB as a raw material in Europe mainly pine wood in the form of logs – logs is used.

The most common OSB applications are the following:

  • formwork plates for concrete,
  • Roofing and roofing panels for interior and exterior walls
    prefabricated houses and other buildings,
  • industrial packaging and merchandise boxes, pallets,
  • various woodworking
  • structural insulating panels (11mm OSB exterior faces)
    inner foam core),
  • in parts of upholstery furniture (eg sofas, armchairs, chairs for chairs.

In general, the good mechanical strength of OSB wood chips and their relatively low density are an advantage for use in furnishings.
