Since Roseburg AB Marine is sanded, it is important to keep the material dry prior to use. Storage in a warehouse or under roof is recommended. If stored outdoors, units should be off the ground and covered loosely with some type of protective material.
MACHINING AND FASTENING
Roseburg’s AB Marine can be sawn, routed, shaped, and drilled. Always use sharp, high-speed tools. Because of the cross-layer construction, nails, screws, and other fasteners may be placed near the panel edge without splitting the panel.
Roseburg’s AB Marine should be securely fastened with 6d nails on 1/4″, 3/8″, 1/2″ panels and with 8d nails on 5/8″, 3/4″ and 1″ panels. Space nails 6″ o.c. around all panel edges and 12″ o.c. on intermediate supports. For soffit applications, all panel edges should be supported. Nails should penetrate at least one inch into the substrate material. Leave 1/8″ gap between panel edges. Spiral or ring shank nails offer the best holding power. Screws and bolts can also be used.
