The technical level of standard fasteners

The author presents a synthesis and comprehensive assessment of the technical level of the existing regulatory framework in Russia on fasteners. The ability to optimize connections to improve reliability and reduce costs is provided by modern fastener designs that should be reflected in the Russian standards. Attention is paid to participation of wider circle of experts in fastener connections improvement.

Why do we need a national standard?

Russia's entry into the World Trade Organization has made the issue of harmonization of relevant national and international standards actual. There is an opinion of the experts from European firms about  the preferred adopting in Russia of regulations, identical to international and European standards. Another position in the formation of standards is based on the opinion of the Russian experts, such as on general issues of building standards and other issues. As an example there was selected the draft of national standard, developed on the basis of the international standard ISO 13918:2008 (E) «Welding - Studs and ceramic ferrules for arc stud welding».

Quality of fastening. Difficulties are in details

The issues of providing of high quality of bolt connections in various stages of production and sale are considered. The reasons that lead to defects in the fasteners and the examples of defects are given. Here you can find the recommendations for buyers of high quality parts of the bolt kits.

Application of anti-friction coatings Molykote ® for high-strength fasteners

Anti-friction coatings on the basis of solid lubricants for high-strength fasteners are considered. The characteristics of different brands of anti-friction coatings Molykote ® are given.

To assess the effect of different brands of anti-friction coatings Molykote ® for rate of tightening and changing the corrosion resistance of nuts, tests were made of hot-galvanized fasteners M22 class 8.8. The results are shown in the table.
