In many critical applications fasteners need to be stainless steel, but standard A4-80 just isn’t strong enough. There are fasteners on the market to accommodate the need, but they are expensive and often not readily available. After extensive research and testing Jeveka B.V says it has succeeded in developing a screw that is up to the requirements of the market.
The new Jextar is a high-quality, high strength stainless steel cap screw of A4-80 quality with a tensile strength of over 900N/mm². “Every screw tested easily exceeds these values, but we decided to stay on the safe side and guarantee 900N/mm²,” explained Adriaan Veltkamp, owner and managing director at Jeveka B.V.
Every batch of Jextar is tested and all batches are provided with a 3.1 certificate. The products from M4 and larger have a head marking of J900, M3 has a J for Jextar and all have full traceability.
Jeveka has M3 through M8 available from stock and if the market demands it, the range is expected to expand. Adriaan Veltkamp added: “We decided to wait with taking Jextar to the market until we tested all sizes and had them available from stock. Jeveka is known as a reliable specialist in the field of fasteners with over 80 years of experience – we want to live up to our trustworthy reputation.”
