    Cold Flow …
  … is a phenomena related to rubber
(elastomers). Rubber moves away from
           points of stress!
 Pressure and heat intensify the Cold
          Flow movement.
Since steam presents both pressure as
well as heat, it becomes very important
   in choosing the proper means of
        clamping the assembly.
