SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is abbreviated name in English «Oriented Strand Boards», which mean «Oriented Strand Boards».
It is a wood-based product in the form of a flat-pressed three-layer board consisting of rectangular flat strands which, under the influence of high pressure and temperature, with the use of synthetic resin as a binding agent, are pressed down to form a board by the hot rolling method.
It is the first wood-based board developed specifically for the construction industry.
SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is free from any humps, cracks, emptiness or other internal defects, while both surfaces demonstrate the same quality.
SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is distinct for its stability of shape, very good resistance to weather conditions, good sound insulation, easy workability and processability.
The micro-structure consisting of SWISS KRONO OSB/3 interpenetrated strands prevents edges from breaking, ensures high rigidity, bending and shear resistance, what are important properties in framework building.
OSB/1 board with no load transfer, suitable for interior applications in dry conditions
OSB/2 board with load transfer properties, suitable for applications in dry conditions
OSB/3 board with load transfer properties, suitable for applications in wet conditions
OSB/4 board with high load transfer properties, suitable for applications in wet conditions
Depending on the edge finish, three types of boards can be distinguished:
SWISS KRONO OSB/3 is the wood-based material of the future. High quality, environmental friendliness both in production and use, coupled with universal applications, are the most important benefits of SWISS KRONO OSB/3.
Houses built by the framework technology based on SWISS KRONO OSB/3 are:
Thanks to SWISS KRONO OSB/3 advantages, single- and multi-family framework buildings are constructed faster and thus cheaper. Erected with precision, they can last for dozens of years. What is more, the houses can be easily and economically heated.
