What is the difference between paper nails, plastic nails and steel nails?

- Aug 28, 2019-

At present, the types of nails produced by the nailing equipment are mainly: paper nails, plastic nails, steel nails, etc. The shape of a single nail is divided into F, T, U and so on. According to the production process, the nails can be divided into two categories: one is a paper row nail, a plastic nail, a straight nail; the other is a steel nail. Its characteristics are as follows:

Paper nails, plastic nails


Since the strength and hardness requirements of such a row of nails are not too high as cement nails, many processes are omitted in the production process, and automated production is currently available in China, and the technology is relatively mature. According to investigations, the materials used for such nails are mainly carbon steel. The general production process is as follows: the round wire is straightened and flattened by a flattening machine, and is collected on a certain number of spools. The tape is glued and dried to form a tape, and the wire is fed into the forming host for cutting. Forming and starting, to complete the entire production process.

At present, the equipment used to produce such nails mainly includes: gluing machine, flattening machine, forming machine.

Steel nail


It is one of many series of nails. Because of its high strength and hardness, it can be nailed into relatively hard materials such as concrete.

a. The diameter of a single steel nail is 2.2mm, and the lengths are: 18mm, 26mm, 38mm, 46mm, 50mm, 64mm and other different specifications.

b. Steel nails must be 40 steel nails in a row, the top and sides must be flat and not warped.

c. The nail row needs to have a certain rigidity and strength: hold one end, the other end must not sink and break.

d. There must be close contact between the nail and the nail, and there must be no gap. The glue is evenly spread, and no tumors or bubbles are allowed. The glue boundary is limited to 10 mm under the nail head.


The steel row nail is made of round wire and wire, and is drawn to the wire diameter required by the wire drawing machine several times by the wire drawing machine. The nail is produced by the nail making machine, quenched by the heat treatment furnace, and then polished by the polishing machine. Electroplating is carried out by galvanizing equipment, and finally, the glue is manually applied, and the steel nails are stuck into a row to form a qualified product.

The difference between steel row nails and other nails such as paper, plastic and straight

Steel studs are very different from others. First of all, their application is different; secondly, the materials, production equipment and production processes used in the two types of nails are very different. So far, the production process of steel nails has not been automated. Only a single steel nail can be produced and then the nails can be manually completed. The production of ordinary nails such as paper, plastic and straight is basically automated. The efficiency is also relatively high.
