RAPTOR® composite staples have stronger tensile holding power compared to similar sized metal staples.
|TENSILE PEAK FORCE DATA|
|SHEAR PEAK FORCE DATA|
RAPTOR® polymer composite staples have strong resistance to chemicals and maintain their strength even after long-term immersion in most liquids including organic solvents, aqueous solutions and automotive fluids such as these listed to the right:
|ORGANIC SOLVENTS||AQUEOUS SOLUTIONS||AUTOMOTIVE FLUIDS|
ULTRAVIOLET LIGHT STABILITY
RAPTOR® composite staples maintain their strength even after 6,000 hours of accelerated aging by exposure to UV and moisture.
- Drivability performance unaffected by low temperatures (Tested down to-30°F).
- Continuous Use Temperature: 350°F
- Short Duration Temperature Limit: 500°F
- Ash Temperature: 900°F
Provides best drivability; will damage high speed steel moulder knives.
Safe for most moulder blades; drivability is somewhat compromised.
Safe for all delicate blades; drivability is somewhat compromised.
RAPTOR® composite staples have been tested in the Kraft® process and do not dissolve or melt. The composite material is 100% recoverable and the density is 1.6 g/cm3 .
