Does OSB Plywood Have a Fire Rating?
MagTech OSB (Oriented Strand Board) is the material that contractors, architects and structural engineers choose to provide flame resistance and structural integrity to a building. This amazing product protects buildings from fire and smoke damage and is a cost effective solution to creating safe buildings that comply with even the strictest building codes.
OSB is made from combining rectangular wood strands and adhesives that are water-resistant. MagTech OSB gets its superior fire resistance due to its magnesium oxide coating that is applied via high pressure lamination. If both sides are treated, the OSB can even be used on exterior walls.Does OSB Plywood Have a Fire Rating?
