Wall Sheathing in the 80's

Wall Sheathing in the 80's

Could someone identify this sheathing panel?

RE: Wall Sheathing in the 80's

Metal straps attached to the panel too?

notice the staples at the right edge, and jagged cut edge.
Agree with Mike

RE: Wall Sheathing in the 80's

It was Thermo-Ply and no metal straps. (The gymsum was removed and I cut a section out with a pen knife.)

Thanks again. You were able to allow me to get a jump on my research.

Best regards;
