Plastic Nails

Has anyone used RAPTOR composite nails for plywood nailing or strip plank nailing?

I just strip planked a 16' cedar canoe with Raptor composite nails.

The nails did not have to be removed; they sanded smooth and help the strips better than metal nails.

Hi Patrick,

I hadn’t heard of these before, they sound to be perfect for the job.

Must they be used with a nail gun?

Do the holes have to be pre-drilled?

And are the nails pre-coated with the ‘cement’ and if so what type of glue is it?
