|– – – – – – – –||Safer than metal staples for people and machines
Works for over 18 months before biodegrading completely
Our 4” (10cm) stakes have 45% more holding power than 6” (15cm) metal staples
Completely biodegrades when the job is done
No need return to site to remove – just let them biodegrade naturally
Really tough and can penetrate the hardest ground
Complies with ASTM D6400 and EN13432
Specified by governments, engineers, conservation bodies and DOTs
Degradable plastics are oil based and break down through chemical reactions and not activity of micro-organisms. They degrade in an anaerobic environment into water. Degradable Stakes are NOT truly biodegradable.
