    Abstract - (Show below) - (Hide below)

    Specifies requirements for two types of oriented strand board, from 6 mm up to 25 mm thickness, in terms of mean quality levels for stiffness, strength, dimensional tolerances and swelling together with strength retention when exposed to water. Also specifies marking requirements. Coverage includes: definitions, classification, moisture content, surface spread of flame, and thermal conductivity. Also includes tables.
