Galvanized vs. Tinned

Galvanized wire is the standard wire and used by many printers and binders.  The tinned wire is more expensive and offers a more oily finish that may leave less residue on the stitcher heads.

Hardness Choice

High Carbon provides a strong driving force for thicker books.  The higher the carcon, the more wear on the machine’s stitcher heads.  It is recommended that the standard wire is tried before switching to a higher carbon wire.

Standard

Economical and smooth running, suitable for light to moderate work.

“X”

Mid Grade – More carbon for improved driving strength and stitching quality.

“XXX”

Triple carbon for thick work and specialty jobs.
