The most common fiber optic epoxy packaging is premeasured two part packs. These take the precise handling out of your hands and decrease the time and amount of material you handle.
This pack also increase your process control and usually has a simple divider with a clip or a burst pack. You will simply break the pack and mix the two parts together. Some materials change to a mixed color to help identify when they are fully mixed.
The next step is to get the material into a dispensing syringe. Once in the syringe it must be degassed. This is usually done in a centrifuge, but can also be done in a vacuum. Once they are degassed the material is ready for dispensing.
