OSB is made from real wood OSB is manufactured in a cross-oriented pattern similar to plywood to create a strong, stiff structural panel. OSB is composed of thin rectangular-shaped wood strands arranged in layers at right angles to one another, which are laid up into mats that form a panel. OSB is bonded with water-resistant adhesives. Most panels are also treated with a sealant on the panel edges to guard against moisture penetration during shipment.
As an added feature, panels are often textured on at least one side to provide a slip resistant surface. OSB uses the wood resource very efficiently, in part because sheathing panels can be made using smaller, younger fast-growing tree species, such as aspen and southern yellow pine. Plus, about 85-90 percent of a log can be used to make high quality structural panels, and the remainder--bark, saw trim, and sawdust--can be converted into energy, pulp chips or bark dust.
