I'm trying to use these strain gauges to measure bending of a metallic cantilever (metal TBD). Does anyone know what adhesive I can use to glue the strain gauges? I'd rather not have to use an oven for curation, unless it is my very last resort.

Thanks in advance!

Please tell us what you have considered and what your particular application is. \$\endgroup\$ – Elliot Alderson Oct 6 '18 at 19:32

I have experience with two-component HBM X60 glue specially made for strain gauges. It's quite expensive, but i can tell, it withstands a lot.

But in general, i would say that any kind of fast cyanoacrylic glue would suit your needs. I have tried 350 ohm, one axis strain gauges with cheap cyanoacrylic glues which you can get on every corner, and it worked well.
