Shank Types

Smooth

The most common shank type, providing excellent holding power in most construction applications

Smooth Shank Nail

Screw/Twist

Requires less driving force than ring shank nails, excellent for hardwood applications such as pallets

Screw Twist Shank Nail

Ring

Requires the greatest driving power and provides superior withdrawal resistancein softwood timbers

Ring Shank Nail
 

Point Types

Diamond

The most common and easiest to drive however may contribute to splitting timbers in some applications

Diamond Point

Blunt Chisel

Almost eliminates timber splitting however not suitable for clinching applications

Blunt Chisel Point

Conical

Designed for penetrating steel, commonly used in steel framing

Conical Point
 

Collation Types

Pro-strip and Rundrive paper tape

Glue/Adhesive

Paslode manufactures their nails from top quality steel. They drive straight and true, regardless of the timber density. The Paslode product design ensures ultra high withdrawal resistance. While the superior collation keeps the nails aligned and firing at speed.

Corrosion Resistance Classes

The Australian Standard for fastener performance
(AS3566) was introduced in 1988, amended in 1990 and ratified in 2002. It currently lists four classes of corrosion resistance.

Class 1   For general interior use where corrosion resistance is of minor importance
Class 2   For general interior use where significant levels of condensation occur
Class 3   For general exterior applications including treated timbers (not suitable for external coastal regions)
Class 4   For external use in marine and moderately severe corrosive environments, generally within 1km from marine surf, although topography and/or strong prevailing winds may extend this distance

Coatings / Finishes

FinishOther NamesDescriptionClass
Bright Bright Steel Un-plated, bright iron with no corrosion protective coating. 1
Copper Copper Flash Thin copper coating generally used for the protection of bright steel staples. 1
Electro Galvanised E/Galv

Electromagnetic Galvanising uses electrolysis to draw zinc and chromate onto the surface of bright steel. The result is a thin galvanised layer with a smooth finish, typically up to 10μm (microns).

2
Mechanical Galvanised M/Galv

Nails are coated with zinc by peening powdered forms of the desired coating onto the surface of the nails.

2
Galvanised      -

Similar to Hot Dipped Galvanising, the zinc coating is applied by immersing a solid continuous wire feed in molten zinc.

3
Armor Galv      -

A corrosion resistant zinc/iron alloy coating with a uniform thickness of 40μm microns. Armor Galv nails are suitable for exterior applications where a traditional HDG or M/Galv fastener is specified.

 
Hot Dipped Galvanised HDG

Nails are dipped into hot melted zinc until a surface layer of minimum 50μm of zinc has been created. The thickness of the zinc layer varies from minimum 50μm to typically around 80μm.

3
Polymer Coated Dip Coated

A functional resin or glue coating is applied to the nail shank to reduce the required nailing power and also to increase the withdrawal resistance of the nail.-
