I would not recommend using those on cinder blocks as they may crack the entire block, best bet is to use tap-con screws and drill into the mortar between the blocks.
About the same as a comparable size nail.
2 1/2" is to long. 1 1/2" should hold. u will need to experiment. shot wise, depends on how hard the clay is in the brick. start with less powerful shot. u should use an adhesive also to bond brick and wood.
sometimes I have had a "soft spot" in the concrete and it "chipped" it. didn't crack the concrete to a point where I was concerned. I just moved over several inches and blew another load.
Hi Ten, these drive pins do not have an ICC number. If you have any further questions, please contact customer service at 877-489-2726. Thank you!
those will work although the dx36 uses .27 cal. rounds instead of the .22 that ramset uses. the power color I use for treated into concrete slab is the yellow for the 2.5" nails. Mike
Hi Lanse, these pins are compatible with Powder Actuated tools such as Ramset, Hilti, and Dewalt. For specific compatibility with your tool, I would suggest contacting the tool manufacturer to understand which fasteners work with your tool. Thank you!
I believe they are all universal. I used these in a "Hilti" brand gun and no problems.
