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

    • (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.

    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?

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

    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

    • 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.

      Best,

      Grace
