    Optics ? Potting?

    I have SSC emitters on the way, square tubing and questions.

    What does it mean when a supplier says that their lenses can be potted?

    Is there anywhere to get just a few square lenses like the Ledil SSS series online? It seems they would be the easiest to use. (2)SSS-Ms, and (1)SSS-SS is what I was thinking. The emitters will be on stars.

    potting means you can put some goop that sets around the outside if you want to seal it from the elements. to make it waterproof in your square section will need seal it with something. probably silicon sealant or something should do it. don't know about the ledils off the top of my head though. I would suggest looking on www.theledguy.com he sells stuff like that in samll quantities.
