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:
formschlüssig
kraftschlüssig
Verbindungstechnik
"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."

Thank you very much for your help!
