A universal CFRTP/NiCF/Al joint method was suggested for the carbon fiber reinforced thermoplastic ABS polymer (CFRTP) and aluminum (Al) with extremely large friction force induced by broad interface of carbon fibers coated by nickel. The CFRTP/NiCF/Al joint part was strengthened by impregnated nickel-coated carbon fibers (NiCF) to prevent aluminum carbide formation, as well as to enhance the ability of fiber rapping by molten aluminum. The universal joint exhibited the extremely higher safety
