German term or phrase:formschlüssig / kraftschlüssig / EVOH / Verbindungstechnik
In a patent relating to connection devices I am having some trouble with the following words in the phrase below:
"Ein weiterer Nachteil der Barriermodule in Form von flexiblen Folienstücken liegt darin, daß FORM- und KRAFTSCHLÜSSIGE Verbindungen nicht möglich sind. Insofern ist die VERBINDUNGSTECHNIK eingeschränkt."
Verbindungstechnik - method of establishing a [secure] connection,
possibly bonding (if this is in a chemical context). Technik in this context refers to various methods or procedures which might be available.
