Proper Panel Spacing
It is important to properly space OSB and Plywood panels to allow for natural expansion as they adjust to the moisture in the environment. APA - The Engineered Wood Association recommends 1/8-inch space between panels for a smooth and secure surface without buckling. For more information, view the following resources from APA:

Tolko T-STRAND Pro OSB SIP Facers
Panel matching made easy
Laminating structural insulated panels (SIPs) can feel like putting together a puzzle, with OSB boards that never quite seem to fit. To help you get the quality you want, and avoid the stress of finding just the right piece for your project, we offer our dimensionally stable and consistently straight OSB SIP Facers.
Tested to the highest standards
Tested to APA’s standards PS2 and PR-N614, these unsanded panels are compatible for laminating with insulating polyurethane (PUR), polyisocyanurate (PIR), and polystyrene (EPS) foam cores.
Build better with T-STRAND
Our SIP Facers offer increased moisture resistance, with our Blue Edge Seal which protects against swelling. To ensure our product arrives at your door in the same condition it left our mill, we ship our SIP Facers in a woven-poly bag for extra protection against the elements.
Safe, clean air
T-STRAND contains no added urea-formaldehyde resin (NAUF) to keep your air free and clear.
