Which synthetic resins are suitable for fabrication of plumbing components e.g pipe sections?

I'm trying to find an easy way to mold/house/encase a custom designed data logger. The water temperature ranges between 10 to 50 degrees C.

EDIT: I'm planning this for both indoor & out door use. Under direct sunlight.


Epoxy should work OK and you have different options that are easy to get.

    $\begingroup$ You have puttys that you can shape by hand. I'm supposing a prototype so you might not need a mold. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ How well do puttys handle UV/sunlight? I've always known putty to be a Terminal emulator link until I Googled. $\endgroup$

  • $\begingroup$ I meant a dough you can give a shape to. Other forms are used for car paint and antiacid lining. I don't think you will have a problem with outdoor use. $\endgroup$
