This system compensates for mismatches of thermal expansion between two surfaces. This is accomplished by using a material that has a thermal expansion coefficient between the thermal expansion coefficients of the two materials being connected. The material is attached to the two surfaces in a configuration to help reduce stresses caused by changes in temperature. The system requires little to no maintenance and can thereby be used in less accessible areas/environments.
