At West Fraser, we run a range of initiatives to realize safe and smart buildings. For example, we have conducted seismic tests in Canada and Japan, demonstrating a high level of performance, surviving tremors 1.5 times the magnitude of 1995 Great Hanshin Earthquake. We also ensure buildings are safe for residents by manufacturing our OSB with no added VOC.

Care and Handling

West Fraser’s OSB is manufactured with no added VOCs. All of our OSB products have the coveted JAS F☆☆☆☆ mark.

There’s no need for edge treatment after cutting. The moisture absorbed is released as you dry panels.

Edge seals are applied to protect OSB against weather during shipping and storage.

When storing outdoors, panels should be covered under plastic sheathing on blocks, in a flat, well-ventilated area to prevent exposure to moisture.

For long-term storage, panels should be stacked. Dunnage should be aligned to avoid warpage.

To prevent damage, panels should not be dropped on their corners.
