I am building some small 316/316L stainless steel
enclosures that will house underwater closed circuit cameras. They have 38mm diameter round openings where a 42mm diameter disc/glass lens will be bonded from the backside directly to the 316 stainless housing. The lens will be flat as will the stainless steel
. The housings will be submerged in ocean water
to about 3-4 feet depth
for extended periods of time so it needs to be waterproof.
I have used some standard two part Loc-tite epoxy
for this and it actually works well (no leaks) but I am concerned about long term use if the epoxy
will break down over time. Is there some type of adhesive
that is best suited for this?
Thanks for any leads or ideas!
