Special substance (adhesive or paint)

  1. Apr 2, 2014 #1
    Hi !

    Can you recommend me a glue or paint or other chemical substance with the following properties:
    - should be transparent
    -should have a refr. index less than 1.6
    -could be easily peeled off from glass
    - should not dissolve in the same substance after drying (I want to make a thin film, peel it off and then stick it with the same substance to an optical device, but the film should not destroy)
    -it is preferably but not mandatory that it should not dissolve in water

    Thank you!

    Maybe clear epoxy resin. RI = 1.5x

    The clear part of a two part epoxy can make a good optical grease.
