Utilization of bamboo as wood substitute for bio-composite industry raw material is very important to support its sustainability due to the huge wood supply shortage for the industry. The objective of this research was to produce high quality of OSB made from mixing bamboo and to determine the effect of strand combination on the properties of OSB. In addition durability of OSB against termites attacks. This research was done of OSB with the core layer orientation perpendicular to the face and back layers. Nine strand combinations from three strand bamboo species Betung bamboo (B) (Dendrocalamus asper (Schult.f.) Backer ex Heyne) , Andong bamboo (A) Gigantochloa verticillata ( Willd.) Munro)) and Tali bamboo (T) (Gigantochloa apus (JA. and JH. Schultes) Kurz)). Were manufactured, namely BBB, BAB, BTB, AAA, ABA, ATA ,TTT, TBT, and TAT. Bonded with 5% of Methylene Diphenyl Diisocyanate (MDI). The results of this research indicate that BAB, ABA, BBB board made from strand combination, produce the best OSB in terms of physical and mechanical properties, and fulfilled on JISA 5908: 2003 Standard. The results revealed that strand combination showed significant effect on board properties, density, MOR in parallel direction to the grain, screw holder power. The results of this study showed the feasibility of using of mixing bamboo species from planted forest for OSB manufacturing, it is important to qualify appropriate raw material supply for the board industry.
