Paulin Box Framing Phosphate Nails are recommended for thinner wood materials such as 3/4 inch thick lumber and exterior trim. Box nails have a thinner smooth shank than Common Nails therefore not ideal for structural projects. Phosphate coated for improved holding power, reduced friction during installation and increased corrosion protection. Not recommended for treated lumber.
Freeman's 1-1/4 Inch 18-Gauge Brad Nails are an excellent choice for fastening thicker trim, mouldings, and baseboards. These smaller headed finishing nails offer excellent strength with minimal visibility. Fits most 18 gauge pneumatic brad nailers capable of handling 1-1/2 Inch nails.
Paulin Roofing Electro Galvanized Nails are large flat thin head nails with a short body. They are used for attaching asphalt, fibreglass shingles or sheet metal to wood. Shanks are smooth or ringed for increased pull-out strength. When installing roofing nails be sure to flush to the shingles. Avoid countersinking roofing nails as this can cause shingles to tear. Thin coating of Electro Galvanized zinc prevents rusting and withstands occaisonal moisture; however, it is less robust than Hot Galvanized and should not be exposed to weather if used correctly. Not suitable for exterior applications.
