Polymer nails, water infiltration, and thermal bridging
They make it sound like a miracle product (particularly in current discussion areas like sealing the leakage from nailing through WRBs), and they don’t even talk about the drastically lower thermal bridging you would expect out of a polymer compared to a nail. With ASHRAE-calculated R-Value, small areas of highly thermally conductive material have dramatic impact on assembly R value, and steel is >400x as thermally conductive as wood.
