Re: Electrically conductive paint

:sad: Yea, thass' me. Turns out the material is not as I'd hoped it be. On curing well, the resistance increase a d___ lot, and even then is not stable. As soon as I've finished the current spate of measurements (few days), I'll publish here my new figures. For now, the original fencing flooring mar...

Re: Electrically conductive paint

Hi Haklesup, the reason for short pot life is not any of the concerns you raised. Can't go into details, but safety is absolutely NOT a concern. If push comes to shove, I could sell the system as two parts, one liquid, the other solid, and have the customer mix and apply quickly. However that's hard...

Re: Electrically conductive paint

Hi Jwax et al, sample? sure. It will be of the flooring with the paint on it. Send me your physical address to [email protected].net & I'll mail you an envelope with a sample immediately. Same for any other interested person. Caveat: at this time the pot life is too short to send out paint. I make it and...

Re: Electrically conductive paint

Further to John: The conductive medium of the ElCon composition is not copper, nor silver, nor carbon. At present I've no data on max current density. Presumably that is a function of temperature, which in turn depends on whether there is an overcoat or insulation or air cooling etc. However, to get...

Re: Electrically conductive paint

First, I want to thank all responders for the accolades. That's from the heart!!! I just dubbed it "The ElCon Paint". From the Jwax entry I went to Wikipedia and found that ElCon's Resistivity is 20 x higher than Silver (metal), but 1/100 that of bulk Carbon. I agree that's interesting - to the poin...

Re: Electrically conductive paint

In reply to the quest for electrically conductive paints: what exists on the marketplace is Silver filled paints, quite expensive, also Copper filled paints, less expensive but trnish to green over time, also Carbon filled paints, inexpensive, but of high resistivity and good only for sloooow leakaw...
