Bare Conductive Electric Paint

<p>Bare Conductive Electric Paint is conductive which means that electricity from the battery can pass through it just like a wire. When you draw a circuit with a Bare Electric Paint Pen, the components and battery are joined together by the paint and make a complete loop, or circuit.<BR><BR>Bare Electric Paint is non-toxic, solvent-free and dries at room temperature.</p>
  • Draw a circuit on almost any surface: Paper, plastic, cardboard, fabric, wood, and more!
  • Connect batteries, LEDs and other components
  • Try it with microcontrollers like Arduino
  • Can be used with conductive thread and e-textiles
  • Great for attaching components and for PCB repair
  • Can be used as a Cold Solder and Wire Paint
  • Non-toxic and solvent free
  • Dries at room temperature
  • Available in 10ml pens, 50ml jars and 1l tins

11 August 2015 Question by: Jenny | Product code: 70-0873
Q. can you solder components to it?
A. Hi Jenny, thank you for your question. This is not compatible with conventional hot solder, you can however cold solder by painting the components with the paint within your circuit.
