OSB Boards, as a product used in construction works, which consists of small pressed wooden elements, are often considered by our investors in the same level with traditional chipboards, although the characteristics of these products are quite different, just as their field of application.
OSB (O-Es-Bi – Oriented strand board – English) are in the world recognised by some other names (in Great Britain they are also called waferboard, Sterling board, SmartPly). OSB boards are composed of several layers of wooden shells/particles ordered in a certain direction in order to provide firmness and resistance to the board.
The main difference between OSB boards and chipboards is primarily that OSB boards are composed of larger wooden parts – shells, which provides better mechanic characteristics in comparison to chipboards – which is composed of tiny sawdust particles.
OSB board is made of shells in dimensions varying between 2.5 to 15 cm, which are laid in more layers, ordered in different directions in order to provide firmness and resistance to negative impacts.
