space-grade adhesive?

space-grade adhesive?

space-grade adhesive?

Hi all,
I'm looking for adhesives to fix electronic components on PCB in satellite and solar cell on solar panel(PCB).
From former thread, people talked a drop of epoxy under parts but it's hard to find right one for satellite building.

Any epoxy or silicon will do after bake out?
if not, do you have any recommendations for adhesive in space?

Thanks in advance

RE: space-grade adhesive?

No, you need low-outgassing adhesives.  However, most of the major suppliers will have something in their catalog for that application.

RE: space-grade adhesive?

As IRstuff mention, you need an epoxy with low outgassing. Also, most space qualified adhesives have low VoC numbers as well.
