For a long-lasting, general use staple that will not let you down, always choose Rapesco.Galvanised SteelRapesco make sure to use the highest quality steel wire with a galvanised finish, meaning each staple has been coated with zinc for maximum durability. Galvanised steel staples are better able to cope with general corrosion, and will keep pages tightly together even when handled over time. For vertical application, long-term application or those travelling with documents, such durability is essential, and it is for these reasons that galvanised staples are the most common for all-round use.Each staple also uses a chisel point, which is V shaped to enable easier insertion and ensure a strong hold.Size and Type GuideThe number 53 refers to the gauge of the wire, or the staple thickness. Considered a ‘hard wire’ staple, these staples are ideal for jobs that demand a more robust solution with stronger holding power, such as packaging, crafting with wood and plastic, furniture applications, fabric, blinds, upholstery and flooring amongst other uses. As they are designed for use with staple guns and tackers, rest assured that staples of this type will insert easily and hold strongly on vertical or non-paper applications.Finally, 8mm refers to the leg length, and should be chosen based on the thickness of the material you will be stapling. 8mm staples are able to strongly hold up to 50 paper sheets at one time, and for anything else, the general rule is the leg length should be around 3 times the thickness of the material being stapled.CompatibilityThese staples are suitable with 53 series staplers and tackers, or any others accepting 53/8mm staples. This will be labelled clearly on the product or packaging.This includes the following:•Rapesco 53 Series•Rapid 53 Series•Arrow JT21•Stanley TR•Rexel•Novus•Leitz•EsselteIf you are unsure which staples are right for your stapler, check the underside of the stapler where the necessary information can normally be found. .
