Detailed technical information for the selected fastener family is found on its product information sheet.
For some applications, two or more fastener families are listed as suitable. The final selection
is influenced by technical data found on the product sheets.
Regional differences in building methods, materials, trade preferences, available tools, etc.
also influence fastener selection. Therefore, designers and specifiers are advised to consult
the current Hilti catalogue and make use of the local Hilti technical advisory service.
Corrosion
Corrosion has a major influence on the suitability of a fastener and therefore also on fastener
selection. In order to provide a basis for judging the suitability of fasteners, it is useful to categorise applications in three classes:
Safety relevant, permanent applications: (e.g. profiled metal sheet fastenings in roofs and
walls)
Nonsafety relevant, permanent fastenings (e.g. metal track fastenings for drywall)
Nonsafety relevant, temporary fastenings (e.g. fastenings of wooden sills, kickers, etc. in
concrete forming).
For nonsafetyrelevant applications, zincplated fasteners made of normal carbon steel
can be used without restriction.
12 / 2013
Aluminum alloy
The accelerated corrosion of a fastener due to contact corrosion can take place only in the
presence of an electrolyte (moisture from precipitation or condensation). Without this electrolyte e.g. in dry inside rooms zincplated fasteners can be used in connection with more
noble metals.
12 / 2013
Design concepts
The recommended working loads (Nrec and Vrec) are suitable for use in typical working load
designs. If a partial safety factor design method is to be used, the Nrec and Vrec values are
conservative when used as NRd and VRd. Exact values for NRd and VRd can be determined
by using the safety factors where given and/or by reviewing test data. Design loads (characteristic strength, design resistance and working loads) for the XHVB shear connector are
listed and ordered as per design guideline.
Worldwide the designer may encounter two main fastening design concepts:
Working load concept
NS Nrec =
GLOB
NRk
NSk F = NSd
= NRd
M
NRk
where:
F is a partial factor of safety to allow for
errors in estimation on the acting load.
M is a partial factor of safety to allow for
deviations in material and workmanship.

With the above recommended sheet thickness and overlap types, it is not necessary to take
into account the effect of constraints due to temperature for steel grades up to S320
(EN 10346). For steel grade S350 (EN 10346) it shall be considered for design. Sheets of
grade S350 on base material tII 8 mm have been verified by Hilti, forces of constraint can be

As part of a steel deck diaphragm, all four fastening types (a), (b), (c) and (d) are executed with the XEDNK22 and the XEDN19. The sheet metal thickness typically varies
between 22 Gauge (0.76 mm) and 16 Gauge (1.52 mm).
Dependent on the base material thickness and the frame fastener pattern, restrictions
on the use of thicker decking might apply. For corresponding details of these provisions, it is referred to the quoted technical literature puplished by Hilti North America.
This literature also contains details with respect to fastener patterns, spacings and
edge distance adequately addressing the specifics of the diaphragm components used
in the North American market.

With the above recommended sheet thickness and overlap types, the effects of temperature induced forces of
constraint during construction can be neglected.
These recommendations are valid for sheets up to S350GD.
With other sheets or overlaps or when unusually large forces of constraint are expected, analyse the structural
system to ensure that the shear force acting on the nail does not exceed Vrec.

Load data
DX Standard: Recommended loads
Fastening wood to concrete, sandlime
masonry or steel
Nrec
Vrec
Design conditions:
For safety relevant fastenings sufficient redundancy of the entire system is required:
minimum 5 fastenings per fastened unit with normal weight concrete base material.
All visible failures must be replaced.
Valid for concrete and sandlime masonry with strength of fcc < 40 N/mm2.
Valid for predominantly static loading.
Soft material:
Working loads depend on strength and thickness of material fastened. Do not use working
loads in excess of those for wood.
Depth penetration and other conditions same as for fastening wood
Use R23 or R36 ( 4.5 mm hole) washer to control penetration and to increase pullover
strength. Separately available from Hilti.

Static or cyclic (5000 load applications) loading.
fcc 25 N/mm2. For higher concrete strengths, higher loadings may be possible if supported by testing.
A sufficient redundancy has to be ensured, that the failure of a single fastening will not lead
to collapse of the entire system.
Recommended loads are based on failure of the fastener anchorage in the concrete.
Thickness and quality of the fastened material may lower the loadings.
Observance of all predrilling requirements, fastened thickness limits, and recommended
details.

using the larger diameter dh as shown in the Product Data Section. Therefore this value is also given in this

Shear Capacity:
The shear capacity and combined loading capacity has to be calculated according to EN
199511 or other applicable regulations. The shear capacity depends on the type of connection, the bearing strength of the wood, the slenderness of the nails and the withdrawal
strength of the nails. Minimum point side penetration depths are given in the section Fastener Selection. Other geometrical connection parameters shall comply with EN199511
(EuroCode 5) or other applicable regulations.

Input data:
t = 20 mm; tpen = 70 mm; k = 350 kg/m3
fax,k = 6.32 N/mm2 and fhead, k = 13.91 N/mm2 (see Characteristic Pull out and Pullthrough Resistance table )
GXWF 90 x 3.1 RD 34 Galv
lg = 73.2 mm; lp = 4.8 mm; dn = 3.1 mm; dh = 7.2 mm (see Galvanized Nails, Service Class
1&2 table )
lg + lp = 78 mm > tpen Embedded part is fully threaded (except tip)
Only threaded part transfers axial loads: = tpen lp = 70 mm 4.8 mm = 65.2 mm
Calculations:
Pullout capacity:
fax,k = 6.32 x 3.1 x (704.8) = 1277 [N]
Head pullthrough capacity: fhead,k = 13.91 x 7.22 = 721 [N]
Char. withdrawal capacity:
Fax,Rk = min {fax,k x dn x (tpenlp); fhead,k x dh2} = 721 N
Head pullthrough governs
Note: Nail Tensile strength doesnt govern for GXWF nails
Results:
To calculate the design withdrawal load Fax,Rd, a safety factor M (= 1.3 for connections)
and a modification factor kmod for load duration, wood type and moisture, apply per
Eurocode 5
Example: solid timber, Service Class 2, permanent loading M = 1.3; kmod = 0.6
Fax,Rd = Fax,Rk x kmod / M = 721 N x 0.6 / 1.3 = 333 N or 34 kg
Application requirements
Minimum point side penetration depth
(for nails in tension please consider Characteristic Pull out and Pullthrough Resistance table,
footnote 1):
8 x nail diameter dn for smooth nails
6 x nail diameter dn for profiled nails
Spacing and edge distance:
Geometrical limitations like spacing and edge distance shall be in compliance with EN 199511 or other applicable regulations

Introduction
1. Introduction
1.1 Definitions and general terminology
Hilti direct fastening technology is a technique in which specially hardened nails or
studs are driven into steel, concrete or
masonry by a pistontype tool. Materials
suitable for fastening by this method are
steel, wood, insulation and some kinds of
plastic. Fastener driving power is generated

fasteners driven into steel is, in fact, a disadvantage in that it reduces pullout resistance. For this reason, the thickness of zinc
on the fastener must be optimized to ensure
good corrosion protection as well as high
holding power. During production, tight control of the galvanizing process is necessary
to prevent excess zinc thickness and thereby poor fastening performance.
Fasteners must be 2 to 3 times harder than
the material into which they are driven. The
tensile strength of structural steel is comTensile strength
(MPa)

monly between 400 and 600 MPa. Fasteners for use on steel thus require a strength of
approximately 2000 MPa. As Rockwell hardness is much easier to measure than
strength, but good correlation exists
between hardness and strength, this characteristic is used as a parameter in the
specification and manufacturing of the fasteners. In the table below, HRC hardness is
given for a range of tensile strengths (DIN
50150).

This risk is mitigated by heattreating the galvanized product at the optimum temperature
for the correct time. Galvanized and heattreated fasteners are subjected to impact
bending tests to check the effectiveness of
the process. Depending on their intended
application, some fasteners are additionally
sampled and tested under tension and shear.

Dropfiring safety
The drop firing safety mechanism prevents
the tool from firing if dropped unintentionally.
This mechanism is so designed that the tool,
cocked or uncocked, will not fire when
dropped at any angle onto a hard surface.
Trigger safety
This mechanism ensures that pulling the
trigger alone cannot cause the cartridge to
fire. The trigger in a Hilti DX or GXtool is
uncoupled from the firing pin mechanism
until the tool is fully compressed against the
work surface.

Production quality
The need for the materials used on the jobsite to correspond to the design of the product and to be of the same quality as those
tested is clear. This requires the manufacturer to have a production quality control system, which is necessary for ISO 9001 certification.
298
12 / 2013
Quality of installation
The use of fastening systems for which the
manufacturer provides application guidelines and a technical advisory service helps
ensure that fasteners will be installed correctly. The concept of controlling the quality
of the work must include some feature that
can be measured and that feature must indicate the performance of the fastenings.
The primary means of checking the quality
of a powderactuated fastening is by checking the standoff over the surface of the fastened material. For fasteners that do not
allow an accurate visual check of the standoff, the use of a standoff template is recommended. In some cases tensile testing of
fasteners on jobsites is necessary. Threaded
studs and some decking fasteners with suitable head design can be tensiletested in
their final position on a jobsite. Other fasteners like simple flatheaded nails have to be
driven through a pullover test specimen
and then tested.

Corrosion
The amount of material loss due to corrosion can be approximated in laboratory scale experiments. The socalled corrosion rate is generally listed as mm/year or g/m2 h (laboratory values). Mean corrosion rates of low alloyed steel and zinc coatings are shown in following
table.
Hydrogen embrittlement
A specific corrosion phenomenon of zinc plated DX fastening elements is hydrogen embrittlement, which will transpire if three different conditions are present simultaneously:
High strength steel ( 1000 MPa)
Presence of hydrogen
Tensile stresses
Corrosion occurs when zinc plated, highstrength fastening element is used in wet atmosphere. During this corrosion process, hydrogen is formed and diffuses into the material. This
leads to a decrease in ductility of the material, leading sudden fastener failure even under
very low static load. This phenomenon is unpredictable and uncontrollable.
12 / 2013
303
Corrosion
Duplex coating
Duplex coating is a two layer coating consisting of a sealer layer with a zinc layer below. The
sealer prevents the zinc from corrosion, so the duplex coating has got a higher corrosion
protection than standard zinc plating.
Stainless steel
There is a wide range of different types of stainless steel, and they each have different corrosion resistance properties. A stainless steel material used in a wrong environment can lead
to pitting corrosion and, subsequently, sudden fastener failure. In such a situation, prediction
of fastener lifetime is not possible.
Hilti power actuated fasteners are made of CR500 and 1.4462 material, similar to A4 (AISI
grade 316) and, for higher corrosion requirements, HCR (1.4529) material. The HCR (High
Corrosion Resistance) material can be used in swimming pools and in road tunnels, where
A4 material is not sufficient.

Remarks:
The ultimate decision on the required corrosio protection must be made by the customer. Hilti accepts no responsabilihty regarding the suitability of aproduct for a
specificapplication, even if inlormed of the applications conditions.
This table is based on an average service life for typical applications.
For metallic coaling e.g. zinc layer systems the end of Iife time is the point where red
rust is visible over a large percentage of the product and widespread structural deterioration can occur the initial onset of rust will occur much sooner
National or international codes, standards or regulations, customer and/or induslry
specific guidelines must be independenlty evalualed.
These guidelines appty to atmosphenc corrosion only. Other types of corrosion, such
as crevice carrosion or stress corrosion cracking must be independently evaluated.

Remarks:
The use of certain wood species including, but not limited to, Oak, Douglasfir or Western
Red Cedar, require the use of stainless steel nails, independent of Service Class and environmental conditions.
The use of certain wood treatments including, but not limited to, fire retardants or preservatives can change the chemical composition of the wood and may require the use of
stainless steel nails, independent of Service Class and environmental conditions.
The evaluation of corrosive environmental conditions depends on many factors and lies
within the responsibility of the customer. The planned service life of the buildings or structures can to be considered according to local or national building regulations and
Eurocode (EN 1990)
The table does not contain recommendations and Hilti does not assume liability for fastener selection based on its content.
For the typical service life, it is assumed that the nails are selected, designed, installed and
otherwise treated in accordance with Hiltis published literature.
Local building regulations and trade rules may differ from the table above. The local jurisdiction always needs to be followed.
Wood to steel connections may require a minimum corrosion protection, independent of

down into the predrilled hole, generating high temperatures
and causing friction welding. Due to elasticity of the base
steel, additional clamping effects are also superposed.
Displaced base material can be clearly seen in the photograph. Base material adhering to the fastener shank indicates

Fasteners for use in steel base material usually have knurling on the shank so as to improve
the resistance to pullout. The effect of the knurling was shown in a test with fasteners that

A fastener can penetrate into steel only when the steel (flange) develops a resistance greater
than the force required for penetration. This implies the use of energy in excess of that
required for penetrating into the steel. In fact, if the driving energy remains constant, fasteners placed closest to the web will be driven deepest. All siding and decking fasteners should
have a mechanism to clamp the sheets down tightly over the entire range of allowable
standoffs. This is especially critical for fasteners used for fastening to thin steel.
Obviously, under shear loading, failure of the base material is more likely with thin steel than
with thick steel. When approving fastening systems for a project, it is important to consider
whether the system has actually been tested with thin base steel or not.
Hilti's general recommendation for thin base steel fasteners is to place the fastenings within
bx = 8 tII of the web.

Testing
Tensile testing of siding and decking fastenings is carried out using specimens made up of a
trapezoidalshaped piece of sheet metal fastened to a steel plate. Suitable, vicelike fixtures
are used to grip the specimen. This is often referred to as a pullover test because the common failure mode is the sheet pulling over the washers or the head of the fastener. If the
sheet thickness fastened is increased so that pullover does not govern, pullout will be the
failure mode.
Some fasteners like the Hilti XENP have a head that can be gripped and pulled out by a
suitable fixture. With these fasteners, a pullout test can still be done even if pullover is the
original mode of failure. This fastener type has the further advantage of allowing inplace
fasteners on a jobsite to be tested.

Sheet pullover
In this failure mode, the sheet tears and is lifted up over the fastener head and washers.
Depending on the sheet thickness and tensile strength, the washers may be bent up.
Washer pullover
Another possible failure mode is that of the washers being pulled up over the head of the
nail. Obviously, this happens when the sheet is somewhat stronger and /or thicker than
when sheet pullover occurs. This failure mode is also heavily dependent on fastener
design.

construction. To carry out the check according to Eurocode 3 it is necessary to have a statistical analysis of test data obtained under the application conditions. Except for siding and
decking fasteners, the applicable product data sheets limit the validity of recommended
loads to predominantly static loading. If a design analysis has to be carried out for true
fatigue loading, test data can be obtained from Hilti. Examples of such data are shown

XEM81514
(standard zincplated fastener)
The XEM81514 has a shank diameter of
4.5 mm and a hardness of HRC 55.5
(fu = 2,000 MPa). The FN diagram shows
the load range F for a lower load of 0.05
kN. The individual test results are displayed
as points and the curves show average and
characteristic (95% survival probability) values. The failure mode was shank fracture or
fracture in the M8 threading.
The recommended load for predominantly
static loading is 2.4 kN. Comparing this value to the FN diagram will lead to the conclusion that XEM81514 fastenings
designed for 2.4 kN static loading will survive a large number of load repetitions. The
fastenings can be said to be robust, even
when the actual loading turns out to be in
part cyclic.

In older product information and data sheets, this basic suitability of DX fasteners for cyclic
loading was emphasized by defining the recommended loads as cyclic recommended
loads. At the time that this product information was assembled, a true safety concept for a
strict check of DX fastenings subject to fatigue loading was not available. With Eurocode 3,
this is today available. If a fatigue design analysis is carried out, it is important as with static
design that adequate redundancy be provided.

Conclusions
The effect of driving a Hilti powderactuated fastener on the fatigue strength is well known
and predictable.
The constructional detail Effect of powderactuated fasteners on base material (unalloyed carbon steel) was evaluated by Niessner and Seeger from the University of Darmstadt in compliance with Eurocode 3.
The EC 3 detail category 90 with m = 3 or the detail category 100 with m = 5 is alternatively
applicable.
Wrong fastener installations as popped out or inclined fasteners are covered. Piston marks
in the base material due to wrong use of the tool without a fastener or notches due to fasteners failed during the installation have to be removed by appropriate measures.

Clamping
The compressibility of concrete limits the
buildup of compressive stress around the
driven fastener. This in turn limits the effectiveness of clamping as an anchoring mechanism.
Concrete failure
Concrete cone failure is occasionally
observed when using a testing device with
widely spaced supports. The fact that the
concrete failed indicates that the fastener
bond to the concrete was stronger than the
concrete.

Design concepts
9. Design concepts
The recommended working loads Nrec and
Vrec are suitable for use in typical working
load designs. If a partial factor of safety
design method is to be used, the Nrec and
Vrec values are conservative when used as
NRd and VRd. Alternatively, the design
resistance may be calculated from the recommended loads by multiplying by the factor 1.4, which considers the uncertainties
from the load on the fasteners. Exact values

NS Nrec =
GLOB
NRk
NSk F = NSd = NRd
M
where:
F is a partial factor of safety to allow for
errors in estimation on the acting load and
M is a partial factor of safety to allow for
deviations in material and workmanship.

design value of the resistance) for the fastener. In spite of this singlepoint design
concept, it is necessary to ensure adequate
redundancy so that failure of a single fastening will not lead to collapse of the entire system. The old saying one bolt is no bolt can
also be applied to DX fastening.
For standard DX fastenings on concrete, a
probabilitybased design concept based
on multiple fastening is applied in order to
allow for fastener driving failures and the
large scatter in holding power observed.
This concept applies to tensile as well as
shear loading and is described in following
chapter.

Calculation method
The calculation method used
is the Monte Carlo method,
by which holding values taken stochastically from the
master distribution are attributed to the individual fasteners of the system and the system is checked to determine
whether the imposed line
load can be supported. By
performing a large number of
such simulations, statistical
information on the failure
probability of a system under
a given line load is obtained.
Design parameters
The design is based on the following parameters:
Failure probability:
1 106
Number of fasteners:
5
Line load uniformly distributed
Failure criterion:
2 edge or 3 central fastenings
The result is expressed in recommended load per fastening.

Static system
Example:
Fastening of a plumbing with five ceiling
hangers.
1. Due to the stiffness (EI) of the plumbing a
redistribution of the dead load (g) to the
remaining hangers is given in case of two
neighbouring hangers failing.
Fixing of each hanger with one nail is
sufficient.
2. The plumbing is not stiff enough to redistribute the dead load to the neighbouring
hangers in case of one fastener failing.
Each hanger has to be fastened with
five nails.
12 / 2013

The application range of the fastener is determined by application limit test where fastenings
are made on concrete of varying strength and age according to the application conditions
specified (predrilling and setting). The attachment height is kept at the lower end of the
range specified. The application limit is reached, if the failure rate exceeds 3% or the pullout
values strongly deviate from a lognormal distribution. The sample size is 30 per condition.
