Epoxy Glue?

Hi I am part of a have rookie FRC team that is wondering if we are eligible to use epoxy glue while building our robot. Any help will be greatly appreciated.

Unless it is spefically prohibited, you can use epoxy. For example you cannot glue anything to your motor controllers. Rather or not it is a good idea is situationally dependent.


Also do not glue pneumatics parts directly, like cylinder or solenoid to robot frame.

It is definitely legal for parts construction, but not for COTS electronic components or pneumatic components.

There are a lot of small things involved in maximizing adhesive strength. Happy to explain what I know if you’re interested, or feel free to shoot me a PM. I’ve done a bit of bonding, and mechanical testing bond strength, using epoxies.
