NEW PRODUCT – Chip Quik Conductive Paint Kit with Plunger and Tips – 5 Grams – CP1-5S


We love non-standard conductive materials here at Adafruit, and now we have a metal-based conductive paint for your crafting needs. This silver/tin/copper based conductive paint is usually used to repair flex circuits or maybe fill in gaps in EMF shielding. But you can use it on paper, plastic, fabric, etc. to create a low-resistance conductive connection.

The Chipquik Conductive Paint 5cc Syringe provides low resistance, metal-based conductive paint in 5g syringe with a plunger & two tips. It can be applied by dispensing, paint brush, or with stencil and squeegee.

Compared to carbon-based conductive paints like Bare Conductive, metal-based paints have lower resistance so you can pass more current through them. They also tend to crack less when bent or flexed. But, they are more expensive.

  • Drying Time:
    Allow 60-120 minutes for paint to dry before using circuit. Resistance will drop from a few Mega Ohms at 0 minutes to approximately 3 ohms per inch of trace after 120 minutes.
  • Packaging: 5cc/5g Syringe
  • Shelf Life: >12 months
  • Cleaning: Clean using water or isopropyl alcohol (IPA).
  • Storage and Handling:
    Store at 3-25C (37-77F). Do not freeze.
