common vs sinker nails

2023-06-10

Construction projects typically require two distinct types of nails – common nails and sinker nails. Steel-made common nails feature a sharp tip, and are used for attaching two parts of wood. Alternatively, copper-based sinker nails are designed for fastening wood to concrete. Regardless of the type used, nails are an essential tool for many construction projects.

For construction projects of all sizes, the choice for fastening two pieces of wood is usually common nails. These nails are made of steel, a strong metal that is specially treated to be less susceptible to rust. Their pointed tips make them easy to hammer, providing a firm and reliable anchor. Common nails offer dependability and longevity; they are an essential tool for constructing sturdy structures.

Copper-based sinker nails are a popular choice in the construction industry, being notably softer than their steel counterparts. This characteristic grants them increased usability, as the lower melting point of copper prevents these nails from getting ruined in roles where common nails would dissolve. Sinker nails provide a secure fix when connecting wood to concrete.

Deciding between common nails and sinker nails requires looking at the various merits and drawbacks of each. Common nails provide superior durability and strength, while sinker nails are more likely to endure extreme temperatures. It depends on the particular application as to which option is best; if strength is paramount, then common nails are the way to go. However, if prolonged heat is a concern then sinker nails could offer the preferred solution.
