We no longer stock Austenitic Stainless Steel annular ring shank nails although we do especially recommended them for the installation of external timber cladding and hand riven chestnut laths for lime plastering.
The steel used for these nails is an austenitic* grade that contains an addition of molybdenum that gives it improved corrosion resistance.
For use with timber this steel grade is the key to avoiding black staining and corrosion of the fixings from tannin (a natural chemical present in some timber species) and therefore to ensuing the quality, longevity and integrity of the project.
For use with timber cladding we advise 80mm, 65mm & 50mm depending on timber thickness
For use with our hand riven plastering laths we advise 30mm
As don’t have what you need in stock today we will gladly recommend an alternative supplier.
