Silentblock teaches a lesson
We have already informed that specialists of Research-and-production association Rostar do their best to trace the conjuncture of spare parts market. And not only with marketing purposes. Partly, it is connected with great amount of pirate goods, filling the automobile counters, partly with occurrence of analogous product, as if normal, but evoking suspicion by lower price. In principle, there is nothing unusual about it even manufacturers of original spare parts, depending on popularity of the brand, can have different price for the same spare part. Here is the content of phone call from over-the-road trucker from Tyumen Dmitriy Mozhevitin: You asked the driver to call you, if there is anything..So I am calling. I have recently bought silentblock for half-spring, for 200 rubles, according to labeling, of Turkish manufacture. I have made three trips to Ural, and the spring banged. I have checked the bush of silentblock is almost bare, and instead of rubber cover, there are scraps. In two days, specialists of Research-and-production association Rostar got the above mentioned silentblock and decided to compare it with analogous product of their manufacture. They cut the both silentblocks. And they got what you see on the photos (Turkish silentblock is on the left, Rostar silentblock on the right). Comments, as the saying goes, are excessive. And still: they hardly cut a foreign silentblock, the rubber easily came off the metal bush, and that showed the intolerable defect of the silentblock absolute absence of adhesion, or, in other words, connection between rubber and metal in places of their contact. The final verdict to the silentblock was made by the quality of the checked product rubber. It turned to be very hard, which doesnt correspond to the standards. The same operation was made with ROSTAR silentblock. The result is near on the photo. Accepting that it is quite easy to cut the rubber, and it is normal, it turned to be just impossible to cut it off from the metal bush of silentblock. Manufactured in full compliance with workflow, Rostar silentblock had all the quality characteristics, required for analogous products. And it costs only 20 rubles more than its defective colleague. So, any driver can easily come to his own right conclusions. And also repeat the experiment with cutting, that was made by specialists of Research-and-production association Rostar. For the accuracy of the experiment, so to say.
