High temperature fibre optic strain adhesive anyone?

  1. Sep 22, 2012 #1
    So I am currently using a high temperature epoxy based strain adhesive on a polyimide coated single mode fibre. This however gives rubbish results in terms of creep at anything above 160 deg C. Does anyone have any experience with this type of problem at all?

    I know that there are metallisation techniques and cements that are available but I am having s hard time tracking down any thing purpose specific.

    Any directions or anything help ( also if some more parameters are required I can easily put them up.

    I would talk to a custom adhesive suppliers like Masterbond and Tra-Con. If anyone can help you find a solution they can.
