- 4" length
4" E-Staple's unique composition sets it apart from other 100% biodegradable staples. Composed of Polyhydroxyalkanoate, a plastic that is made from plant sugars and oils.
This natural plastic eliminates the use of petroleum-based materials. This innovative composition produces unique and unmatched physical and chemical features as well as benefits.
E-Staples biodegrade by a surface attach mechanism triggered by soil microbes naturally present in the soil. As a consequence, E-Staples will biodegrade faster in more fertile soil because that means there are more microbes breaking down the material. E-Staples biodegrade in cold (43°F) to hot (180°F) conditions and do not rquire a pre-hydrolytic reduction in molecular weight for degradation to begin.
Pre-hydrolytic reduction generally requires a hot (140°F - 149°F) and moist composting step, which is not a common condition for soils where turf staples are used. E-Staples will biodegrade completely from the soil in 8-24 months depending on site conditions.
Staple shall be 100% biodegradable from microbial activity in accordance to ASTM D5338 and ASTM D5271
