Trib-Joins are strengthend press fit couplings, in which a thin film of chemical cold-welding agent is trapped between pressed & held together smooth similar and dissimilar clean metal surfaces. Upon plastic deformation within contacting asperities the agent becomes active causing enlarged cold pressure welds to form, which provide instant extra grip without heat or cure. Upon relaxing the contact pressure the cold pressure micro welds fracture to facilitate disassembly.
