    I found some monels that said rustproof 66% nickel and 33% copper on the box.The other says stainless steel, I remember some saying part tin.Is Monel just a word made up from Arrow?

    Will nickel rust ? I know the copper will turn colors.

    Anybody?

    Nickel will not rust! I think your fine with either staple, but the nickel, copper combo seems better, IMO.

    Check out the attached link. It is a fairly basic description of monel. I am not a metalurgist, but I bet it would work just fine for what you are going to use them for. I think the stainless steel ones would also be ok. I do not know off the top of my head which one would best in salt conditions, but it might be the monel.

    Jamestown Distributing, look it up on the web. They sell stainless T-50 staples. The only way to go......

    Another place to get upholstery supplies is www.rochfordsupply.com, however I don't know that the stainless staples they offer fit in a T50 style stapler.
