  • Patent number: 3966042
    Abstract: A strip of nails for use in a rapid-acting driving apparatus which includes a plurality of nails with shanks in a side-by-side closely spaced parallel array. The shanks of each of the nails in the array are secured together by a carrier of a single-component, metal-adherent plastic defining uniform envelopes for opposed sections of the periphery of each nail shank. Within the gaps between the shanks, adjacent envelopes form opposed spaced generally V-shaped folds which act as sites for easy shearing of a nail from the strip. The bond between the plastic and the nail shank is greater than the shear resistance of the carrier material between two adjacent fasteners and greater than the resistance of the workpiece encountered when fastener and carrier material penetrate the same, with the result that all the material that holds the fastener together enters the workpiece.
