What happens if you undermix epoxy?
In fiber optic cable assembly applications, most epoxy package sizes are quite small – just a few grams – so undermixing is typically not an issue. While mixing the resin and hardener (Part A and Part B), ensure all the material from the corners and edges of the bi-pack is thoroughly blended to achieve a uniform color. In the rare instances when epoxy is undermixed, Part A and Part B do not fully cross link to provide the necessary adhesion.
