Since 1888, steel nails are made in the nail factory Rivierre. Today, we can make almost any nail in this metal.
To match your needs, whatever your speciality is, we manufacture different sorts of steel.
Plain steel nails and polished steel nails can be used in shoemaking (steel tack) or for the building and restoration of historic monuments and old houses (steel forged nail).
Galvanized steel nails are mainly used in the building or restoration of old wooden boats (CARVELLE forged nail). The galvanization strengthen the nails and make them very hard to pull off.
Blued steel nails are very liked in the upholstery industry (blued steel cut tack and blued steel forged tack). We fire the nails for a few minutes after they are made, which gives them beautiful blue sheens and cleans them from dust.
Bleud steel nails are also used in the building or restoration of old houses (MARINIER forged nail).
Tempered steel nails are very strong and can bu used in many fields. They can be simple nails (cone head nail for exemple) or annular nails (buttress heel nail for exemple).
Many finishing touches can be added to steel nails as coatings (zinc coating, nickel coating, copper coating, brass coating, etc.) or coloring (black, rust-like, ancient gold-like, etc).
