What is the recommended needle size to dispense epoxy?



With so many unique applications as well as connector sizes, the answer to this question truly does depend on your application. Needles range in gauge size and length; some have a tapered tip to allow higher-viscosity materials to flow more easily. A general guideline is to try a 1.5 inch, 20-gauge dispensing needle. As noted above, test and adjust as necessary.
