Norbord Norbord is a leading manufacturer of wood-based panel products. Our products are used extensively in the construction and furniture industries, both by professionals and by DIY enthusiasts. Our aim is to supply an environmentally friendly quality product. A substantial proportion of the wood used in SterlingOSB-Zero comes from sustainably managed forests and a large proportion of our product range carries FSC and PEFC certificates of sustainable production. SterlingOSB-Zero: formaldehyde-free structural board Norbord has developed an OSB board produced with completely formaldehyde-free binding agents: SterlingOSB-Zero. Available in three versions and with a square or tongue-and-groove edge, SterlingOSB-Zero is suitable for use in general and load-bearing applications in both dry and humid conditions.

The product range SterlingOSB-Zero As well as being strong and hard-wearing, SterlingOSB-Zero is also extremely versatile and easy to work with. Every board offers excellent value for money and the comprehensive product range means there is a board for every application and all conditions.

SterlingOSB2-Zero SterlingOSB2-Zero is an low-cost structural board for general and load-bearing applications in dry conditions. It is suitable for a wide variety of applications such as site hoardings and garden sheds as well as for crates and pallets.

SterlingOSB3-Zero SterlingOSB3-Zero is an all-round structural board for general and load-bearing applications in dry and humid conditions. SterlingOSB3-Zero is the number one choice for a huge range of applications in housebuilding, commercial construction, timber-frame construction, flooring, walls, portable buildings and roof edges.

SterlingOSB4-Zero For floors, walls or roofs subjected to very heavy loads, SterlingOSB4-Zero, with its higher density, is the ideal board. Just like SterlingOSB3-Zero, SterlingOSB4-Zero is suitable for use in all conditions.


Investing in the environment Norbord is committed both to its customers and to the environment. A great deal of the wood used in SterlingOSB-Zero comes from sustainably managed forests and the proportion is steadily increasing. Much of our product range therefore carries FSC and PEFC certificates of sustainable production. SterlingOSB-Zero is manufactured close to home, in Genk. This means less freight mileage and less fuel consumption, further reducing our impact on the environment.

Processing

Storage

SterlingOSB-Zero must always be installed on a clean and dry base. To prevent panels from swelling or shrinking, Structural boards must be stored in the location where they will be used for at least 48 hours to acclimatise to the ambient conditions. Board edges should be suitably protected against damage, especially if they are tongued and grooved. Guidelines on storage and general processing can be found on our website www.norbord.eu.

SterlingOSB-Zero structural boards should be stored and transported flat and in dry conditions. If you are going to store he panels for a prolonged period, cover them with a tarpaulin and ensure that there is adequate ventilation. In this way, you will prevent condensation from penetrating the SterlingOSB-Zero. SterlingOSB-Zero must be stored in accordance with the standard ENV 12872.
