A polymer optical fiber is needed as a light guide between the fiber optic instrument and the sensor spots
We offer this clear and non-toxic silicone adhesive for mounting sensors spots on many substrates such as glass and most common engineering plastics. Suitable solvents include isopropyl alcohol, acetone or methyl ethyl ketone.
On exposure to moisture, the freshly applied material will "skinover" in ~7 min. Any tooling should be completed before this skin forms. After skin formation, cure continues inward from the surface. In 24 hours (at room temperature and 50 % relative humidity) the silicone glue will cure to a depth of about 3 mm.
