Two part epoxy, dual syringe mixing tube, 50cc of resin and hardener. FiberFin has specially formulated this epoxy specifically for use with metal and plastic POF connectors. This epoxy has an extended working time of 1 hour.
For POF applications that must withstand extreme temperature operation or frequent temperature cycling, optimal connector-to-cable attachment can be achieved through the use of an adhesive, particularly a two-part epoxy.
Epoxy is first placed in the connector, then fiber is inserted and the connector is crimped normally. Once the epoxy has cured, the connector can be polished. Approximately 1 mm3 is used per connector. Good epoxy coverage can be achieved by turning the fiber within the confines of the connector.
