For Strain Measurements at Higher Temperatures
X280 cold curing adhesive is always a good choice for strain gauge installation, in cases where strain measurements need to be taken at higher temperatures, but a hot curing adhesive cannot be used.
Epoxy resin-based X280 adhesive is a good choice for strain gauge installation in experimental tests, especially if measurements must be taken at higher ambient temperatures, and a hot curing adhesive with high operating temperature ranges cannot be used for whatever reason. For example, the reason could be that a certain component is simply too large to fit in the oven for the heat curing required with hot curing adhesives.
X280 adhesive gives great results when used on both porous and smooth surfaces. The adhesive, consisting of two components, is also very easy to use. The components are packed in double bags, so no weighing is necessary.
*The specified quantities are approximate recommended values only, as adhesive consumption also partly depends on the size of the strain gauges being used.
