Technical Tip: Adhesive Selection for Space Applications
Epoxies make an excellent choice of material for space applications. However, selecting the right adhesive is extremely critical for the performance of various optical and electronic components in space. One of the key concerns while selecting an adhesive for space applications is its serviceability in extremely high vacuum environment. Systems operate under very high vacuum (~ 10^-8 torr) in space. Any outgassing from the adhesive could lead to failure of crucial components of the system.
