1.What are plastic strip framing nails?
The nails are held together with plastic strip resistant to any weather conditions. Our plastic strip nails are 21°-22° angle. Plastic strip framing nails are widely used in most wood applications to provide excellent holding power.
2. How many nails are held in one strip?
One plastic strip can hold from 20 to 30 nails.
3. Where are plastic strip nails applied?
Plastic strip nails are commonly used in framing, sheathing, carpentry, and in other wood applications where strong holding power is required.
4. Will 22° plastic strip framing nails work in a 21° nail gun?
Either 21° or 22° nails will work just fine. Nail guns have about a 3° tolerance on nail angle. Using either 21° or 22° nails – you won’t be able to tell the difference.
5. What are plastic strip collated framing nail shank types?
A smooth shank allows nails to enter the material more easily.
Ring shank nails have very high initial withdrawal resistance. Therefore, they are used in many wood framing and sheathing applications.
Screw shank nail resists withdrawal all the way out when being pulled. Therefore, screw nails are preferred for wood construction projects.
6. What are paper collated joist hanger nail point types?
Diamond point is the most common nail tip. It gives the best possible penetration into the material.
Clinch point nails are used to secure boards of pallets and other wooden structures. The clinched nail tip bends easily under the metal base.
Blunt point nails prevent the wood from splitting when driven. It breaks through the wood fibers instead of splitting them.
7. What are plastic strip collated framing nail types?
Bright nails are not coated with a protective finish layer which means they are more vulnerable to outdoor conditions.
Vinyl coated nails use a slick vinyl coating for easier nail driving into the material. When it is driven for a moment vinyl heats up by the friction and then quickly cools down, hardening the vinyl coating which acts as the glue. However, this coating does not protect the nail from corrosion.
Electro-galvanized (white) nails have a 12μ layer of zinc which offers corrosion protection. They are generally used in areas where minimal corrosion protection is needed.
Electro-galvanized (yellow) nails offer the same corrosion protection as white galvanized nails the only difference is the color.
