Multifunctional Reinforcement System for Wood Composite Panels

Description:

When stressed, OSB panels tend to fail along the edges at nail attachments.  This is particularly true if the OSB has gotten wet.  This technology presents a moisture impermeable edge reinforced wood composite.  The reinforced edge improves fastener performance and reduces panel edge swell as a result of moisture exposure.
