Senco is adding composite staples and nails for customers requiring blade-friendly, non-rusting, metal-free fasteners.
Manufactured with a blend of polymer resin and fiberglass, composite fasteners are beneficial for specific applications in the woodworking, industrial, lumber tagging, timber processing, and millwork industries, according to the company.
“The use of traditional metal fasteners in certain manufacturing applications can compromise the appearance, performance and value of the final product,” Senco product manager Eric Bellman said in a statement. “Metal to metal contact can also damage equipment, reducing productivity and increasing maintenance costs. Our new composite fasteners eliminate these concerns.”
The company says its composite fasteners can be sanded, shaped, and cut without damaging equipment, and are ideal for spoiler boards in CNC operations and joining smaller and larger boards for machining.
The composite fasteners are available in standard size strips that fit pneumatic nailers specifically designed to drive composite fasteners. Sizes include 18-gauge brad nails, 15-gauge nails, and 16- and 20-gauge staples.
