Base level source - conductive coatings & paints (graphite, silver)

Post by Richard Hull » Tue Mar 09, 2021 6:53 pm

I have used Ted Pella conductive graphite and silver products in my electrostatic work and experiments. I highly recommend them in a number of areas for the amateur experimenter where a simple low current, yet often high voltage conductor is needed. Obviously silver coating can handle a good deal more current due to it near zero resistance, but can really be expensive. Thankfully Pella knows this and sells in small quantities. If you make a boo-boo, simple isopropanol will wash your error away if you are using a graphite product. Note: if you use any of these painted-on materials, they will dry out like any paint product over years of storage so buy small and keep tightly sealed. Great stuff! They also offer aluminum oxide insulator paste and paints....Nickel conductive paints, etc. It is all offered in the sheet the URL below delivers.
