Nail Size and Length
In actual operation, a proper nail length should be 3 times the thickness of the substrate you are nailing through. E.g., A 8-penny nail is suitable to fasten a 1-inch-thick material and a 16-penny nail is suitable to fasten a 2-inch-thick material
Material and Coating
Sometimes, the elements of the project will be exposed to outdoor or wet conditions for a long time. If so, except for a proper nail length, an anti-corrosion surface coating is another factor to consider in making the project strong and reliable.
- Electro-galvanized. it is a zinc electrolytic process that adding a thin coating to the carbon steel nails.
Electrogalvanizing coating can withstand dry and low-corrosion applications for a few more months or
possibly an extra year. But it is not recommended for corrosive environments.
- Hot dipped galvanized. It is an effective way of metal corrosion, mainly used for metal structure on the
facilities of the industry. Hot dipped galvanized nails are recommended for pressure treated wood and
cedar which can cause standard nails to corrode quickly
- Stainless Steel 304/316. These types of materials are the appropriate choices for high level corrosion
protection requirement. Especially for most exterior applications. 316 grade stainless steel,
chromium-nickel alloys, can stand up Marine and corrosive industrial atmospheres.
