If you need to be very chic and even

One of the main reasons why these universally applicable chipboards have made it to the eternal hit list of home improvement is their attractive price. The final product, if we just go out of an intermediate wall, with a larger living space is to be separated, but then a bit more elaborate in the final processing. Because: In contrast to the "normal" chipboard

you have to fill OSB boards if they are to be used over a large area and additionally painted or papered .Small Material Knowledge on Chipping Plates

Due to the technology, OSB is only produced with one third of the amount of glue used in the production of conventional chipboard. This means that their surface is considerably coarser in structure, but at the same time more moisture can penetrate. Even with painstakingly accurate assembly, a visible gap

will always form on the joints and corners of several panels, which must be closed before further processing. Filling OSB boards is therefore mandatory wenn if the paint is then evenly covered or wallpaper is glued over the surface after a subsequent priming. A manageable amount of work to be done on OSB panels As the surface structure of this wood-based material is above average porous, which effectively absorbs applied paint, it is optimal to apply a suitable putty compoundover the entire area. For this work you need tools and materials:

filler (filling and / or joint spatula)

spatula (screw grip and surface spatula), smoothing trowel joint tape strips and corner profiles whisk or similar (for stirring, if powder is used)

  • preparation work the wall
  • Before you can start filling OSB with panels, s√§mtliche all joints between the chipboard
  • as well as all connections to masonry, ceiling or floor must be carefully closed. Commonly used are:
  • grid strips

paper joint cover strips

glass fiber strips which are usually self-adhesive. Care is particularly important in these areas, so that it does not come later to cracking and possible inclusion of moisture. Filling OSB panels starts at the top joints

  • The technology that is used concretely depends primarily on the characteristics of the filler (plastic or gypsum-bound materials). Relatively simple, clean and fast
  • can be processed pasty mixtures
  • , which are simply applied with a long-pile roller made of lambskin. In any case, priority is given to the manufacturer's instructions for use, which in the end also help to achieve the optimum result for OSB paneling.

Tips & TricksFor smaller surfaces or to fill in the joints between the walls, it is sufficient to apply putty from the tube or a cartridge to these areas. The impression is always made across the joint, while you should work on the subsequent removal always from top to bottom.
