It is unwelded in the periphery, because PMMA with lower wear resistance tends to be worn and spun out during the friction welding process; as a result, the opportunities for wetting, approaching, and molecular chain interdiffusion with PVC and PMMA are fewer.

For friction welding, the beginning of the steady-state phase is characterized by a linear variation of the displacement with time; it can be assumed that the resulting welds are uniform and reproducible once the steady state has been attained.
