Galvanised nails are created mainly for roof work. Their zinc coating gives them a dark silvery colour, as well as a rough finish. It may take a few coats to paint over them since non-oil based paints may not immediately stick to the nail's zinc coating. On the nails, galvanised nails are probably the most familiar, thanks to their flat head and smooth shank.
The same way that bright nails get their name from their uncoated body, galvanised nails get their name from their creation process. They get coated in zinc during a process called galvanisation, which protects them against corrosion. Although eventually, these nails will rust, this process profoundly expands their life. Galvanised nails stick much better to most surfaces, so they'll last much longer—from 34 to 100 years, by some estimates.
