Biodegradable staple system introduced

Products | June 1, 2006 | By:

American Excelsior Co. and Uzet World Dublin have partnered to introduce e-Staple to the erosion-control industry. The devices offer an option in biodegradation from cold to warm conditions and will not soften during storage through humidity pickup.

The e–Staple product can also be used on coastal erosion installation projects and for sod as well, and disappears in 8 to 24 months. The material is waterproof and has been approved by the Irish Department of Communications, Marine and Natural Resources.

The material characteristics and the e-Staple design provide high holding and tensile strength. A manual applicator system is available now; a pneumatic hand-held and automated applicator is planned for future release.
