Installing a sensor using VergeSense-provided adhesive is a strong, reliable, durable solution for scenarios where drilling and magnets are not an option. This application is approved for installation on metal and glass only. Please contact VergeSense if there are any questions or concerns.
VergeSense will provide the approved adhesive as needed.
Step 1: Surface Preparation
Use a disposable towel or cloth (light colors preferred to show contaminant removal) with the appropriate cleaning solution (listed below).
- For dust, dirt, and fingerprints, use an isopropyl alcohol solution (70% IPA/30% water)
- For oily substances, use acetone
Wet your cloth with the appropriate cleaning solution then wipe it down with a dry cloth to remove any wetness.
Step 2: Tape Application
Start the tape at the edge of the mounting plate surface and lay it down, applying constant pressure as you go. Apply a rolling downforce over the entire area to ensure good contact between the tape and the mounting plate.
Step 3: Mounting plate installation
Remove the protective liner to apply the other substrate.
Press the mounting plate to the surface applying constant pressure and hold for 60 seconds.
Step 4: Sensor installation
After application, the bond strength will increase as the adhesive flows onto the surface. At room temperature, approximately 50% of the ultimate strength will be achieved after 20 minutes, 90% after 24 hours, and 100% after 72 hours.
VergeSense recommends installing the sensor after 24 hours.
Attach the sensor using the magnets.
