Product overview

• Nontoxic, solvent free alternative to solder that can be removed with soap and water if a mistake is made
• In an easy to use squeezable tube

How does the paint work?
An easy to use alternative to solder, wiring or tracks the electrical paint can be used to draw a path for electricity. This 10ml tube allows you to test and experiment with the paint in an easily applied squeezy tube. The paint becomes more electrically conductive as it dries and dries at room temperature. The conductivity of the paths is dependent on the thickness of the paint and it is best to wait until the paint is completely dry before testing a circuit.

What can I use the electric paint with?
This paint is nontoxic, solvent free and water soluble and is a great way of introducing electronics to beginners. If you make any mistakes the paint can be easily removed with soap and water. Use the paint to trace an electrical circuit on wood, textiles and some plastics or use it as a conductive adhesive to cold solder components. Unlike acid etching there is no need for protective gloves or masks and unlike soldering there is no heat source. Perfect for using with temperature sensitive components or for experimenting with. Bare conductive electrical paint is not suitable for application onto bare skin.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great Stuff! I actually bought this with little hope as I had accidentally cut through the wire of some fairy lights. It wasn't the money to replace them, just that they are 5m long and intricately weaved through wickerwork. With 5m to thread and every led catching and jamming it had taken the best part of a day to do and the thought of having to do it again.... I didn't hold out much hope of ever being able to repair such fine wires, but after scratching the ends with a Stanley Knife to remove the thin plastic coating, the electric paint held them in place without support as it dried. It is nicely thick and sticky. The instructions say that it becomes conductive as it dries and it certainly does. I switched the lights on after 10 minutes or so and they flashed dimly, gradually getting brighter as the paint dried, until finally being restored to their original brightness. Brilliant stuff!
