This new edition of CSA Standard Z166 (now CAN3-Z166), Explosive Actuated Fastening Tools, supersedes the previous editions published in 1966 and 1975. This new edition is written in SI (metric) units and divided into two separate standards although bound together. They are:
CAN3-Z166.1. Powder Actuated Tools-Performance Requirements;
CAN3-2166.2, Powder Actuated Tools-Use and Handling.
This Standard covers requirements for the performance of powder actuated tools and powder loads.
The values given in SI (metric) units are to be considered the standard values. The values given in parentheses are for information only.
