EN 300:2006 (E) 4 Foreword This document (EN 300:2006) has been prepared by Technical Committee CEN/TC 112 “Wood-based pan-els”, the secretariat of which is held by DIN. This European Standard shall be given the status of a national standard, either by publication of an identical text or by endorsement, at the latest by January 2007, and conflicting national standards shall be withdrawn at the latest by January 2007. This document supersedes EN 300:1997. The following principal modifications have been made: a) thickness ranges for board types OSB/2, OSB/3 and OSB/4 have been extended; b) requirements for moisture resistance have been adapted; c) requirements for the marking of boards have been simplified, taking account of the fact that EN 13986 now describes the detailed requirements for CE marking of boards for use in construction; d) former Annexes E (list of approval numbers for option 2 board types with certain adhesives or

adhesive systems) and F (A-deviations) have been deleted. According to the CEN/CENELEC Internal Regulations, the national standards organizations of the following countries are bound to implement this European Standard: Austria, Belgium, Cyprus, Czech Republic, Den-mark, Estonia, Finland, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Iceland, Ireland, Italy, Latvia, Lithuania, Luxem-bourg, Malta, Netherlands, Norway, Poland, Portugal, Romania, Slovakia, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzer-land and United Kingdom.

marking 3 Terms and definitions For the purposes of this document, the terms and definitions given in EN 13986:2004 and the following apply. 3.1 Oriented Strand Board (OSB) multi-layered board mainly made from strands of wood together with a binder. The strands in the external layer are aligned and parallel to the board length or width. The strands in the internal layer or layers can be randomly orientated or aligned, generally at right angles to the strands in the external layers 3.2 strand piece of wood of a predetermined shape with a length of more than 50 mm and a typical thickness of less than 2 mm 3.3 major axis direction in the plane of the board in which the bending properties have the higher values 3.4 minor axis direction in the plane of the board at right angles to the major axis 3.5 dry conditions conditions corresponding to service class 1 of EN 1995-1-1 which is characterised by a moisture content in the material corresponding to a temperature of 20 °C and a relative humidity of the surrounding air only

exceeding 65 % for a few weeks per year

EN 300:2006 (E) 7 3.6 humid conditions conditions corresponding to service class 2 of EN 1995-1-1 which is characterised by a moisture content in the material corresponding to a temperature of 20 °C and a relative humidity of the surrounding air only

exceeding 85 % for a few weeks per year 4 Classification of boards Four types of board are classified and are distinguished as follows: OSB/1 general purpose non load-bearing boards, and boards for interior fitments for use in dry conditions; OSB/2 load-bearing boards for use in dry conditions; OSB/3 load-bearing boards for use in humid conditions; OSB/4 heavy duty load-bearing boards for use in humid conditions. NOTE Load-bearing boards are intended for use in the design and construction of load-bearing or stiffening building elements e.g. walls, flooring, roofing and I-beams (see EN 1995-1-1 and/or performance standards) for use in dry or

humid conditions 5 General requirements for all OSB types Oriented Strand Boards shall comply with the general requirements listed in Table 1 when dispatched from the producing factory. NOTE On delivery of OSB panels, their moisture content should be determined prior to use, and allowed to come into equilibrium with the ambient climatic conditions.

In the case of boards with different moisture content (in the range of 3 % ≤ H ≤ 10 %) the perforator value shall be multiplied by a factor F which can be calculated from the following equation: F= − 0,133 H + 1,86.
