The nominal 5/16 head of the PANELFAST® AGS-100 series pins are perfect for attaching plywood, oriented strand board (OBS), exterior gypsum sheathing and fiber cement boards to steel framing 68mil (14ga) and lighter. Designed for use with the Model 510 tool, the ballistic point and knurled shank combine to produce maximum holding strength. Like all ET&F® .100 pins, these fasteners have Aericote® 1000 coating, which provides 1000 hour salt spray corrosion protection. See IAPMO Report ER-848 for design values for attaching gypsum sheathing, DensGlass® Gold and Fiberock® to cold formed steel
