example usage 1

Conductive Paint Airbrush Version is an easily applied paint which produces conductive films on non-conductive surfaces.  Low temperature curing permits use on temperature sensitive and other delicate materials, i.e. paper, plastics, wax mandrels, natural products such as flowers, leaves, etc.

A suspension of finely divided silver in a thermoplastic vehicle.  It must be thoroughly mixed before use, and shaken or stirred regularly during use to avoid settlement of the silver powder.

Extra thinning can be achieved  using Thinners for Conductive Paint. This solvent can also be used to clean brushes and equipment. Cellulose thinners can also be used for cleaning brushes and equipment, but is not recommended for dilution of the paint.

Observe appropriate precautions for handling flammable liquids.

It is possible to apply several coats to a figure or mandrel to produce a thicker, more conductive silver layer before electroplating. On wax or silicone rubber moulds, ensure the contact wires are firmly held in place, and the paint is also applied to the contact wires for continuity of circuit.  Thorough curing between applications is essential to minimise running.  Wax moulds should be washed carefully in dilute neutral detergent and dried thoroughly before applying Conductive Paint, to remove debris and oily patches.
