Abstract

The objective of this paper was to evaluate the mechanical and physical properties of oriented strand board (OSB) using cement as binder. It was found that an increase of cement-wood ratio resulted in an increase of all, but MOR values. A lower cement-wood ratio than for particleboards is required in order to manufacture acceptable OSB and this may be due to the strands geometry.
