What are the advantages of using Triclad® as opposed to “traditional” methods of joining?

Triclad® Traditional
Permanent, maintenance free, "fit and forget". Generally require use of bolts or rivets , plus gaskets. Can work loose, due to flexing of the hull, creating gaps in which corrosion develops.
Rivet or bolt needs to be insulated from aluminium.
Can be installed by one operative. Generally, two operatives necessary.
Continuous joint, even stress distribution. Rivets/bolts give uneven stress.
Rigorously tested approved product. Difficult to assess quality of joint.
Watertight. Any corrosion self extinguishing. Tend to leak.
