Connexus Mechanical Interference
The interference, metal-to-metal fit, is achieved by inserting a carefully tapered pin end into an expanded belled end.
Connexus Epoxy Seal
The epoxy seal created when one pipe is inserted into the other creates a flexible, airtight and corrosive resistant wall at the connection point of the joint.
The interference fit is responsible for the axial load carrying capacity of the joint, relying on contact stresses between the pin and bell for strength.
