This International Standard provides translation guidance for
terms commonly used to describe fasteners. This International
Standard lays down the terminology of fasteners in English, French
and Russian, recommended for use unless otherwise specified in the
appropriate product standard.
At present, not all of the fasteners listed are covered by ISO
documents. For the main part, the items have been selected from
existing national standards. Also included are obsolescent types
(those being used up from stock) in order that their terminology
may be standardized at the same time.
The drawings are essentially diagrammatic, in particular those
showing bolts and screws having special characteristics.
NOTE In addition to terms used in the three official ISO
languages (English, French and Russian), this International
Standard gives the equivalent terms in Chinese, German, Italian,
Japanese, Spanish, and Swedish; these are published under the
responsibility of the member bodies for China (SAC), Germany (DIN),
Italy (UNI), Japan (JISC), Spain (AENOR), and Sweden (SIS),
respectively, and are given for information only. Only the terms
given in the official languages can be considered as ISO terms.
