friktionstätning
Explanation:
In friction sealing, the top and bottom halves of cylindrical containers may be easily joined. The bottom member is held against rotation by a friction brake; the top member is pressed against the bottom member and rotated. The heat generated by friction at the interface between the two halves melts their surfaces and the viscous interface causes the bottom half to rotate in unison with the upper half. This effects the seal.
