LP Strongcore is manufactured by the Louisiana-Pacific Corporation, one of the biggest manufacturers of orientated strand board – OSB. The LP Strongcore product mixes strands of hardwoods – oak, maple and ash with waxes for durability, resins to resist moisture and binders to resist impact. Borates are also in the mix to prevent fungal attack and rot. These Borates are safe and have been used in household items like carpet for many decades.
The face of the cladding has a primed finish that takes paint well. There are no knots and the boards won’t warp so your paint finish should look as good as possible.
