Starborn Industries: Starborn Industries Introduces New CAP-TOR™ Screws for Capstock and Composite Decking

CAP-TOR is the Only Screw on the Market Specifically Designed for Capstock Deckin

Mar 09, 2011 11:56 CET–Starborn Industries, Inc., a leading manufacturer of fasteners and related products for the building industry, has introduced Cap-Tor, a new high-performance fastener specifically designed for use with the newest type of capstock (co-extruded) decking, while also working with traditional composite decking. The specially engineered head and thread design of Cap-Tor screws eliminate the common challenges associated with fastening capstock decking. These problems include curled waste (shards of attached decking that form around the screw head), dimpling (the “caving in” of the deck board around the screw head) and white shear (a white discoloration around the screw head caused by the fastener stretching the hard outer shell of the decking).

“New types of PVC and composite decking are introduced regularly,” says Larry Crossley, Vice President of Sales at Starborn Industries. “Starborn prides itself on its ability to keep up with the rapidly changing decking market. Cap-Tor is a perfect example of that.”

Cap-Tor was engineered by Starborn Industries with a specially designed head that cleanly penetrates the hard outer layer of capstock products to ensure a clean tight fit. It is available in stainless and epoxy-coated steel and in 10 different colors to match all of the major capstock and composite decking products available in the market today.

For more information on the new Cap-Tor screw for capstock and composite decking, please or call 1-800-596-7747. Cap-Tor can also be found in many lumberyards and hardware stores nationwide and also purchased online. For up to date information about new products and upcoming events, visit
