Oriented strand board (OSB), also known as sterling board, is a versatile and durable type of engineered wood. It’s formed by compressing layers of wood strands together with adhesives, with the strands pointing in specific orientations, which gives it its rigidity and strength. Due to its helpful mechanical properties, OSB is commonly used in construction for load bearing applications. Other common uses of OSB are as sheathing in floors, roof decking and walls, as well as a material for furniture production.

At CutMyPlastic we offer a number of FSC® certified, CE and BBA approved OSB/3 boards in 11mm, 15mm and 18mm thicknesses. You can buy sheet sizes up to 2440mm x 1220mm or order a bespoke size board cut to any size or shape. Using our CNC router we can cut OSB board within +/-3mm tolerance, giving precision accuracy and consistent duplication. If you have a specific shape or size in mind, well be able to make it - all you need to do is draw out your design and send it over to us in either CAD or a sketch format, it’s that simple. Whatsmore, we can also rebate, pocket and cut holes in your OSB board using our CNC router.

Please note, our OSB/3 boards come stamped from the manufacturer, and as such, we suggest the boards are finished, or are purposed where aesthetics will not be a factor.

 

The Advantages of OSB Board

In recent years OSB has grown to become a leading material in the construction trade, overtaking a huge market share from plywood. This down to a view main reasons- it’s versatile, it’s practical and it’s more cost effective than plywood. At CutMyPlastic, 1 metre squared of our thickest OSB board (18mm) costs £38.80, dramatically cheaper than Plywood, which costs £77.83 per square metre (again at our thickest option of 18mm). This makes OSB a more cost-friendly option for DIYers, trades people and building companies.

OSB board is also a greener option when looking for timber supplies. Because OSB is made from lots of pieces of smaller wood, it can be created by using smaller trees which grow quicker. Plywood on the other hand requires large-diameter trees, which generally need to be harvested from old forest growths- a less green option.

 

Different types of OSB

There a 5 types of panel classification for OSB sheets, standardised in BS EN 300 in terms of their resistance to water and mechanical performance:

  • OSB/0 – No added formaldehyde
  • OSB/1 – General-purpose boards and boards for interior fitments (including furniture) for use in dry conditions
  • OSB/2 – Load-bearing boards for use in dry conditions
  • OSB/3 – Load-bearing boards for use in humid conditions
  • OSB/4 – Heavy-duty load-bearing boards for use in humid conditions

We sell OSB/3 boards as standard.

 

FAQs about OSB

What does OSB stand for?
OSB stands for Oriented Strand Board.

Is OSB water resistant?
Most OSB are water resistant, due to the construction process using wax, resins and wood strands. For truly waterproof OSB however we recommend adding a waterproof coating.

Will OSB hold screws?
Yes, OSB can be screwed and nailed to any surface, as long as you have enough screws to fix it inplace.

Is OSB stronger than Plywood?
OSB is 2 times stronger than plywood in shear. Generally, however, OSB and Plywood have a similar load strength.

What is OSB 3?
The term OSB/3 is used to describe a type of OSB, as follows: "load-bearing boards for use in humid conditions". This is defined in BS EN 300.

Frequently Asked Questions

 

What tolerance do you cut to?

We cut to a tolerance of +/-3mm.

What is your delivery timescale?

3-7 working days.

Is mirrored acrylic like normal mirror?

Mirrored acrylic is a flexible material, and needs to be attached to a perfectly flat surface. We recommend attaching it to MDF or something similar, making sure the adhesive is spread in a thin even layer across the acrylic. we also recommend using the 5mm thick acrylic as it is more rigid.

Can you cut any shape?

Yes, in acrylic. We will shortly be able to also cut any shape in polycarbonate as well.

What's your standard radius corner?

20mm, but we can cut to your requirements.

How many holes do I need in my acrylic?

1 per corner should be sufficient for smaller pieces. You might want to consider an extra hole in the middle if your sheet is larger.

Can I cut acrylic?

Yes, you can. Just take it slow and easy.

Can I put acrylic behind a hob?

Not if it is gas or electric. You need a gap of 5cm between an induction hob and the acrylic.

Do you fit the acrylic?

No, we don't. We do provide some templates which should help you to take your measurements. The acrylic is easy to install by any competent DIYer.

What's the difference between acrylic and Perspex?

Perspex is a brand name. It is the same as acrylic.

What's the difference between acrylic and polycarbonate?

Delivery received as advised, well packaged, no issues. Unfortunately I'd ordered the wrong perspex - my fault! I found selecting the material itself a little challenging but ordering the sizes and corners I wanted was relatively easyt.

Arrived as ordered, and within a short period of time. We used it for secondary glazing and are very happy indeed. Their customer service team is excellent and the pricing is competitive. I placed three orders so far and will need to place at least one more in the future. Very happy customer.
