We take Hot Dipped Galvanizing very seriously. We do not believe in cutting corners when it comes to quality. For Hot Dip Galvanized Nails the process is simple but so often neglected by others. The name “Hot Dipped Galvanized” describes the process by which the fastener is galvanized. For a nail to be called “Hot Dip” the nail must literally be dipped into a vat of molten zinc. If it’s not dipped in zinc then it’s not Hot Dip. It’s something else.
A word of caution
Be on the lookout for imposters who claim to be hot dip but are instead some form of ceramic tri-laminate coated proprietary galvanization. If you’re buying Hot Dip Galvanized nails ask questions to make sure you’re getting true hot dip nails.
On this page you will find three different types of Hot Dip Strip Nails.
Old World Hot Dipping referred to as HDG grade on our website. HDG grade nails are first cut to length and heads formed from a large spool of brite steel wire rod. Then nails are Hot Dipped into Molten Zinc until a thick uniform coating is achieved across the entire surface of the nail. Next, the nails are either packaged in bulk or collated together into strips or coils. Our HDG Nails meet and or exceed the ASTM A153 Class D Fastener specification.
Made from Hot Dipped wire referred to as HDGW grade on our website. HDGW grade nails are cut to length and heads formed from a large spool of Hot Dipped wire rod. Our HDGW nails will meet and/or exceed the ASTM A153 Class D Fastener specification.
