Using a hammer to insert nails is a familiar picture, though some builders like using pneumatic nailers to get the job done instead. That's where collated nails, in their various forms, come into play.
Collated nails come in strips, so they insert into pneumatic (air- or gas-powered) nailers. They may connect with wire, plastic, or even paper. Galvanised nails, although they do not get packaged as such, also work for nailers.
Collated nails are used in nailers, meaning you'll need nails that match the nailer's pressure or even nailer model. Not using the proper nails with your nailer may result in wear and tear as well as more nail jams. If the nail package has an ASTM or ICC-ES stamp, then the nails are high-quality and up to code.
Plastic and paper-tape collated nails tend to be the most popular since paper-tape pins have better holding power. Twisted nails, which come into use where wood may shift because of weather, are also available.
No matter the type of nail you use, all collated nails should fit most nailers.
