Cold Soldering

Electric Paint can be used as both a liquid wire and an adhesive. Use it to attach components to a range of materials. This is a great alternative to the soldering iron when you’re in a hurry.

How To Seal Electric Paint

You can protect and seal the sensors you’ve made with different sprays and varnishes. Don’t worry – it will still conduct!

11 reviews for Electric Paint 10ml

  1. Ysm

    Not review but question…
    What is maximum surface roughness that we can have for the paint to remain conductive?
    What is thinnest possible film it needs to remain conductive?
    Can it be inkjet or spray coated?
    I am a researcher and would like to play with it for different applications.

    • Pascal Loose (verified owner)


      We have never measured the maximum surface roughness, nor have we measured the thinnest possible film. However, our paint has a resistivity of 55Ohms/square at 50 microns. Unfortunately, the paint is too viscous to be used in an inkjet or spray-coated, the best way to apply it is with screen printing.

    Hi, can I apply this on copper?
    If I applied this on copper what will be the reaction?

  3. Nikos

    can you please tell me if the resistance of the dried paint varies with strain?
    have you made any measurements?

    • Bibi Nelson (verified owner)

      Good question! Yes the resistance is likely to change with strain – it is not something we have measured as the amount of strain will depend on the material the paint has been applied to.
      It is more likely that the paint will crack with excessive strain and this will be what affects the electrical resistance.
      If you would like to discuss this further you can email info@bareconductive.com

    Not a review, just a question.
    At what temperature can the paint stay the way it is?
    Like if it hits 100 degrees will it melt?

    • Bibi (verified owner)

      Hi Josh – we’ve not tested the paint with higher temperatures than room temperature. I imagine the water would evaporate out of it and paint would just crack.

  5. Katriona Main

    Can I screenprint a small circuit (with primary school kids) with this?

    • Bibi (verified owner)

      Hello, yes you can screen print the Electric Paint, we have a tutorial here


    is it suitable for rearwindscreen element repairs ?

    • Bibi (verified owner)

      Hello, good questions Electric Paint has not been tested with a power source exceeding 12V DC or 50mAmps.
      I think your rearwindscreen element power might exceed this but if not then feel free to give it a try, you might need to seal the paint with a varnish as it is water soluble.

  7. shobana

    this is not the review actually. have a question about the ingredient of the product.Is conductive paint carbon based?What are the ingredients of it?Can I use it for research purpose to make a thin film coating?

    • Bibi (verified owner)

      Hi, yes it is a carbon based paint, I will send you an email to discuss your research further

  8. jacob

    is it possible to do through-hole plating with this?

    • Bibi Nelson (verified owner)

      Good question, as it is waterbased it is not able to be electroplated, however you could use it to coat the inside of a hole much like the effect of through-hole plating. If this is not what you mean send us an email to info@bareconductive.com and we can talk more about it.

  9. Andreas

    What are the electrical specifications? Maximal current? Resistance? The comment above of “55 Ohm per square” does not help a lot. Square of what? Wouldn’t the resistance have to be expressed in volume units. E.g. 55 Ohms per cubic mm?

    the ‘tutorials’ link is broken

    • Isabel (verified owner)

      Thanks for the head’s up Michael! I’ve updated it so it should work now.

  11. kalyan Kumar Mistry

    I cant get full conductivity, after drying it has some resistance. and at water stick out from and made open circuit.
    can I make permanent conducting layer

    • Grace Attlee

      Hi there,

      I am sorry you are having trouble with the paint. The paint is resistive- at approximately 55 ohms per square. When wet it doesn’t work, as stated on our packaging.

      If you could send us some photos to info@bareconductive.com we would be more than happy to help.
