Stainless steel nails vs iron nails

Stainless steel nails

Stainless steel nails are a common metal product widely used in construction, furniture, automobiles, electronics, aerospace and other fields. Stainless steel nails are favored for their corrosion resistance, wear resistance, and high strength. The materials of stainless steel are mainly 304 or 316 stainless steel. 304 stainless steel has good corrosion resistance and heat resistance, suitable for outdoor or humid environment. 316 stainless steel has better corrosion resistance and heat resistance, especially suitable for places close to seawater or with more chemical media.

Compared with screw nails, screws offer superior tensile strength over nails.

Iron nails

Iron nails, with a flat head a sharp point, are mainly used for fixing or connecting. There are many types of iron nails, including ordinary nails, felt nails, cement steel nails, lost-head nails, shoot nails and coil nails. The surface can be galvanized or copper-plated, which can be selected according to actual needs. Iron nails are generally used in carpentry construction, as floor nails, furniture nails, wood mold nails, etc.

What are the Differences between stainless steel nails and iron nails?

  1. Different materials. The biggest difference between stainless steel nails and iron nails is that they are made of different materials. Stainless steel nails are made of 304 or 316 stainless steel, which has high strength, corrosion resistance and heat resistance. And iron nail adopts the wire rod of No. 195 wire rod or No. 235 wire rod.
  2. Cost difference. The manufacturing process of stainless steel nails is relatively complicated, and the price is relatively high, while the production cost of iron nails is relatively low. If corrosion resistance is not the primary consideration, you can choose galvanized iron nails, which are cost-effective.
  3. Different strengths. Due to the difference in material and quality, stainless steel nails have higher strength and toughness than iron nails. Therefore, stainless steel nails are more suitable for occasions that require high-strength fixing, such as construction sites and wood product processing lines. Iron nails can be used for some low-strength fixing and decoration scenes.
  4. Different degrees of corrosion resistance. Stainless steel nails are made of stainless steel and are not easy to be corroded. They are suitable for occasions that require corrosion resistance and wear resistance, such as oceans, waterfront areas, kitchens, bathrooms and other humid environments. However, iron nails are easy to rust in a humid environment, so it is recommended to choose stainless steel nails in an environment that requires long-term exposure to the outside.

To sum up, there are differences between steel nails and iron nails in terms of material, price, strength and corrosion resistance. Consumers should choose nails according to their specific needs, so as to ensure the use effect and safety.
