ASTM C514 — Standard Specification for Nails for the Application of Gypsum Board
Description of Standard
This specification covers the requirements for steel wire nails suitable for use in the application of gypsum board. Details of construction for a specific assembly to achieve the required fire resistance shall be obtained from reports of fire-resistance tests, engineering evaluations, or listings from recognized fire testing laboratories. Steel Wire, used in the manufacture of nails, shall be of hard-drawn low or medium-low-carbon steel. The nails shall be tested and shall conform to specified values of physical properties such as ductility, and withdrawal resistance.
