QUESTION:

Is a static mixer the recommendation for fiber optic epoxies?

 

ANSWER:

Almost all epoxies used in fiber optics are two part and have dissimilar mix ratios.  This, coupled with the relatively small amount of material being applied, means a static mixer is NOT a recommended way to go.  There is too much risk of an incorrect mix ratio getting into the connector.
