Re: CONDUCTIVE ADHESIVE

Well, I just wanted to share that find with you all....if you find
a use...high or low voltage...then my job is done here lol. I
wonder if there's any possibility of copper or silver plating over it

The ad says its for low voltage, but I'd
love to try some of that out on a high
voltage, to see how high it'll go before
it takes a dive. :) Perhaps they've
just not tested it on anything "high"
before... could be a handy coiling
accessory, if it can hold up... maybe
go so far as to sculpt a toroid from it."
Voltage has nothing to do with it. Conductive adhesives don't
have as high a conductance as solder but are useful where heating
isn't practical or where heating will destroy the objects to be
The stuff I'm familiar with is silver loaded epoxy and produces about
0.1 ohm connection resistance when joining a pair of #20 wires with a
lap of about a quarter inch. Just a test piece, not actual usage.
Note the price of the stuff and think several times about buying
it for anything other than specialty applications. Newark (and
probably Mouser and DigiKey and all the rest) sell similar materials.
Ahhh...imagining that irresistible "new car" smell?
