Dear all! If you are in to the construction industry, you must definitely be aware of the powder tools by this time for they are extensively used to attach an assortment of construction materials together, such as wood and concrete and lots more to add to the list. Being in the construction industry, I have witnessed gluing wood to concrete is one of the most fundamental, protracted and dodgy tasks in construction. Whether you’re about to anchor sill plates or to attach strips to concrete walls, you’ll discover yourself engaged in a demanding task, working with apparently mismatched materials and wondering if the whole thing will stay attached. In recent times, thanks to the advancement in Science and technology, the powder actuated tools, also called the PAT have come into existence and these tools are gifted with the supremacy to shoot a pellet at the speed of the “winking eye” and force a fastener into concrete with such power that it at times takes a ton of power to take it out. With such immense power, it is not wise to make use of powder tools for all situations. They should never be used without the basic knowledge of how to use and individuals should never endeavor to make use of power fasteners in very stiff concrete or breakable materials, or else it may lead to serious consequences.
