Ramguard Drive Pins For ACQ Pressure Treated Lumber
As many of you know, there have been changes to the regulations affecting pressure treated lumber. The industry standard CCA treated wood is no longer being produced for residential use. Most new pressure treated wood is utilizing Alkaline Copper Quaternary (ACQ) treatment. It has been confirmed that ACQ corrodes steel 2 to 4 times faster than the old CCA treated lumber.
This means that Ramset's standard drive pins are not recommended for use in ACQ treated lumber.
Ramset has developed a coating called Ramguard for use in all pressure treated wood including the new ACQ treated wood. The Ramguard coating offers excellent corrosion resistance that rivals hot dipped galvanized and stainless steel. Washered versions of these pins utilize a Ramguard coated pin and a washer with a G185 coating. This combination was developed to withstand the increased corrosion rate that sometimes occurs when using fasteners in the new treated lumber.
Caution: Always wear eye and ear protection at all times. If you aren't sure which power level to use then start with a lower level and work your way up. And remember that 1" of penetration into concrete is the rule of thumb. And yes, with the proper power level and correct length you can fasten to structural steel. But beware the noise and the recoil.
