Oriented Strand Board (OSB) is the most used structural board for timber frame buildings in many parts of the world (e.g. USA & Europe) having replaced plywood and particleboard.
SimBoard® is made of 100% fresh pinewood from thinning of PEFC/FSC® certified sustainable forests. The strands are glued together with formaldehyde-free binders. Because of this SimBoard® OSB can also be used for food packaging.
Particleboard is made from small wood particles and sawdust. Call your local Simmonds Lumber Sales ® office for details.
