OSB application issues: OSB varies from mill to mill across the US. In most cases, Wigluv will bond to the smooth face of OSB without issues. Please test your application and if you have doubts about the bond after 24 hrs, please prime the joint with SIGA Dockskin primer.  Once primed, Any SIGA tape will adhere to the rough surface of OSB and bond well.
