In many critical applications fasteners need to be stainless steel, but standard A4-80 fasteners sometimes aren’t strong enough. Therefore, two years ago, Dutch fastener wholesaler Jeveka B.V introduced the Jextar brand and is now introducing a new titanium Grade 5 variant.
Developed by Jeveka, Jextar is used all over the world by various industries, which have a strict requirement for quality standards. A good example of this is in the semi-conductor industry where requirements are notoriously high. Jexstar stainless steel cap screws of A4-80 quality are available with a tensile strength of over 900N/mm².
As a result of the initial success, Jeveka has recently created a titanium Grade 5 variant for the Jextar brand. Due to the pressed head and rolled thread, these titanium hexagon fasteners also meet high standards, bringing more flexibility in designs and the manufacturing process.
Every batch of Jextar is tested and provided with a 3.1 certificate and all products have full traceability. The products from M4 and larger have a head marking of J900, as well as M3 hav-ing a J for Jextar.
