- 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.
