|Publication Date:||1 November 2011|
This specification covers nails, spikes, staples, and other driven fasteners, as listed in Table 1.
NOTE 1-Fastener ductility information is presented in Table 2 and dimensional information in Tables 3-65.
Fasteners described in this specification are driven by hand tool, power tool, or mechanical device in single or multiple strikes and are positioned by hand, tool, or machine.
The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. No other units of measurement are included in this standard.
Fasteners in this specification are sold in bulk (loose) form and are collated for loading into the magazine of an application tool. Other than as covered in Section 9,Workmanship, cohering materials (including, but not limited to, plastic, adhesive bond, paper tape, plastic strip, plastic carrier, wire, etc.) and relative orientation of collated fasteners are not within the scope of this standard.
