      Hi.
      I am a student of Mech Engineering
      i want information from you about starin guages bonding. we are designing an apparatus for combined loading and we need strain gauges for that purpose we have already purchased the strain gauges and now we are searching for its bonding kit and after a long search we are unable to find something less expensive . I would be very thankful if you help us.Please give us an idea that we can implicate for bonding of strain gauges other than bonding kit , becz it will cost us too much if we ordered it online
      also you can tell us if there is a way of buying less expensive kit

      In a five minute search of the internet I learned that strain gages can be bonded with two part epoxies or cyanoacrylates. You don't have to buy an expensive kit. Just get one of those types of glues and use it. If you wish to be thorough you would buy a couple of types of glue and install gages with each type. Gather your strain data and compare results to see if you can find a difference due to adhesive.
