Pack's of 2000 Round head nails.

These plastic collated stick nails traditionally have a fullround head, while only giving marginally better holding power toclipped head nails, they are preferred by the constructionindustry. Collation is angled at 21° to accommodate theoverlapping heads.

Smooth shanknailshaveexactly that: a smooth appearance. Due to their regular form theycan be produced at very high speed and are therefore the mosteconomical type of nail. However, their holding power is the lowerthan ring shank nails. They require less energy to drive them andthe air consumption per nail can be lower. Sometimes it is possibleto use a smaller tool to drive them.

Ring shank nailshave a series of rings punchedinto the surface of the shank. Again a difference in the diameterof the shank is produced making it even more difficult to withdrawthe nail. Ring shank nails have to be produced at lower speeds andtheir cost is generally higher than for a smooth shank nail. Theair consumption per nail is also higher, and the energy required todrive these nails into hard wood is very much greater.

Brightfinish is without any form of protectionand is the most economical choice, but the nails will start to rustbefore nails that have a protective treatment. Used in applicationswhere no protection is required, for example a one way disposalpallet. As all standard nails come with this finish.

Galvanising, or coating with Zinc, is the bestway to prevent nails from corroding. The zinc does not protect thesteel of the nail, but is corroded first. The thicker the zinccoating, the longer it will be before the nail is attacked. Thethickest coating is called hot dipped and is applied by dipping thenails into a bath of molten zinc. Galvanised protection is measuredin Microns (each Micron is 0.000001 of an metre thick). The thickerthe micron coating the better the protection level of the n
