The finishing presently used on the T-A6V bolt assembly--anodic sulfuric oxidation, lubrication with molybdenum bisulfate, is inconvenient in certain respects in particular, from the point of view of corrosion of the poles by galvanic couples and adhesion of paints and mastics on the screw heads. The tests consisted of comparing various possible methods of protection, encountered during tests defined according to various norms. Among the tested protective agents, MoS2, Cadmium and Aluminum, only the aluminum protection agent gave results which were satisfactory in all respects.
