Agreed, that OSB is structurally an excellent choice. However, plywood, having discrete veneer layers, has more initial resistance to degradation by water. OSB soaks it up and swells quite nicely.
I did mention the OSB on the walls, as it is not as an effective membrane for fire-protection as gypsum board. Gypsum is a hydrated calcium salt that aids in fire attenuation when heated, thus driving off the water.
I am aware of a somewhat contradictory test by Warnock Hersey that was commissioned by the OSB industry. So, the beat goes on!
But, fire sprinklers are very, very effective. We like them; they save lives and property.

Hmm OSB Flammability perhaps this might show it is not really all that flammable :}

That is a piece of Cold Rolled Steel fresh off the abrasive wheel chop saw, was dull red in shop light so call it about 800 Deg F. Hot enough to cause the osb to smoke but no flame showed. Ahh gotta love the smell of steel being cut and the smell of wood smoke :}

Where did the notion occur that OSB is really all that flammable?

The topic was painting of unfinished wood: sorry to have de-railed it.

Shellac works very well as a sealer, dries real fast, can apply finish coats right after. Almost all types finish and paints, be it water base or oil can be used. Carl
