A: PORTER-CABLE's PUS38G staples are compatible with this staple gun.
A: The stapler is metal.
A: My answer to using the stapler to attach batt insulation is mixed. First, technically yes, it would staple through the batt paper and into the studs. But, these 22ga staples are so small that you would have to use a lot of them to hold the batts securely. Otherwise, they might tear through the batt paper. They will probably be able to hold the batts okay if you install the sheetrock wallboard very soon after, as the wallboard would then act to hold the batts as well. I also would advise putting the wallboard up more quickly if you're putting the batts in the ceiling, since the weight of the batts would make it tear through easier. So, yes, I believe the stapler could be used if the work proceeds quickly and you use enough staples.
A: I bought mine to do upholstery work. It works great. I think it would work for insulation as well. The staples are narrow, I would try it on a lower pressure and work my way up.
A: I bought one to do upholstery on anything. It will drive a staple into plastic. But not into fiberglass. It's a decent staple gun, especially for the price
