We treated our camera boom parts with Alodine 1201 to allow us to bond the carbon fiber to them. The Hysol 9430 cannot bond to bare aluminum because of the oxide layer, so the alodine provides a good surface for bonding.

Our camera boom components are done. In a few days, we will have a camera boom and can get rid of the tripod on top of the robot! Thank you Lincoln Tool of Hudson, MA for the quick turn-around on the parts.
