Oriented strand board (OSB)

OSB (Oriented Strand Board) is a multi-layered wood-based composite. The individual layers consist of long slender wood strands bonded by a polymeric adhesive. The strands in the surface layers are oriented in the major axis of the board. The high aspect ratio of the strands (length to width 10:1), increases the board's bending strength in the direction of the strand. Strands in the core layer are generally distributed randomly but can also be aligned perpendicular.
