I am using Stycast 2850ft with Catalyst 9 for attachment of temperature sensor and cryowires. I found out that Catalyst 9 is damaging the wires insulation. Do you have any recommendation for different catalyst or maybe different adhesive that would not harm the insulation of cryowires and is vacuum compatible?

What cryogenic wire are you using as we use Stycast 2850, Catalyst 9 in several of the temperature sensors we assemble and it does not cause any issue with the insulation on the cryogenic wire we sell.
If you are installing Lake Shore sensors, please check the respective sensor installation instructions which can be found on our website in the download tab for each sensor model
