New Speedy Alternative to Screws for Steel Construction

Addison, IL, November 8, 2011 — B2B Industrial Packaging LLC is now offering its signature Diamond Head Nail-an extreme timesaver and the proven most cost-effective choice for steel construction. Compared to the alternative (screws) Diamond Head Nails are much more efficient and economical and just as reliable for a range of construction materials-particularly steel.

B2B Industrial's Herb Burrows is the developer of the highly innovative fastener (also called a pin), which allows builders to fasten OSB board, plywood, gypsum board, metal and other sidings to light gauge steel in a fraction of the time and at a fraction of the cost (screw guns vs. much faster nail guns). Regular nails will not penetrate or hold in steel.

"This is the first viable alternative to the screw for steel construction," said Mike Theriault, president and CEO of B2B Industrial. "It allows installers to speed through jobs that would otherwise be time-consuming and tedious without compromising quality."

Diamond Head Nails are made of super strong hardened steel and consist of a standard flat nail head with an engraved diamond-shaped emblem. They are manufactured from steel wire complying with ASTM A 510, Grade 1060 (UNS 1600) and are heat-treated to provide case and core hardness of 52-55 HRC.

The nails have either electrodeposited zinc coatings with a chromate finish or mechanically deposited zinc coatings complying respectively with ASTM B633 Type II, SC 1 or ASTM B695 Type 1 Class 12. The hardened nails have a ballistic point with a nominal 0.10-inch (2.69mm) or 0.145-inch (3.66mm) diameter knurled or smooth shank, a nominal 0.245-inch (6.2 mm) diameter head and a minimum length of 3/4 inch. They are available in 15-degree wire collated and 21-degree plastic collated strips, and 0-degree plastic coil sheets.

Using Diamond Head Nails, contractors and inspectors can trace the nails because they know the Diamond Head design, the manufacturer and the necessary testing to win ICC approval.
