Fastening Into Concrete

When a powder, gas, or battery-actuated fastener is driven into concrete, the concrete around the fastener shank is displaced. This displaced concrete compresses against the shank, creating a friction hold. In addition, heat generated during the driving process causes a sintering of the concrete to the fastener.

Fastening Into Steel

When a fastener is driven into steel, the steel around the fastener shank is displaced. This displaced steel flows back around the shank and into the knurling creating a keying hold or, in the case of smooth shank fasteners, a friction hold. In addition, the local heat generated during the driving process causes partial fusion of the fastener to the steel.
