CircuitWorks Conductive Epoxy

CircuitWorks® Conductive Epoxy is a two part, silver epoxy used in prototype, repair and general conductive bonding applications. It features strong mechanical bonds, excellent electrical conductivity, and quick room temperature curing. CircuitWorks® Conductive Epoxy bonds aggressively to a wide variety of materials.

CircuitWorks 60 Minute Conductive Epoxy has an extended pot life for high strength conductive bonds. Components can be easily placed and replaced before full cure occurs. For accelerated cure, simply heat material to 212°F (100°C). This conductive epoxy bonds aggressively to a wide variety of materials.

FAQ's

How do you repair a damaged pad on a PCB?

Standard 2-part epoxy can contaminate the surface of the connector, creating an insolative barrier. 2-part conductive epoxy is a great solution for making repairing damaged pads. This type of epoxy contains conductive material, so when cured, it forms a very strong and highly conductive bond, similar to a solder joint. Chemtronics offers two options: CircuitWorks Conductive Epoxy, which cures in 10 minutes, and CircuitWorks 60 Minute Conductive Epoxy, which provides more time to work. Both Epoxies have A and B components that need to be thoroughly mixed before the curing process will begin. Once mixed, you use the included plastic pick to apply to epoxy to the connection.

How do you connect a temperature sensitive component without high temperature soldering?

2-part conductive epoxy is a great solution for making solderless electronic connections. This type of epoxy contains conductive material, so when cured, it forms a very strong and highly conductive bond, similar to a solder joint.

Both Epoxies have A and B components that need to be thoroughly mixed before the curing process will begin. Once mixed, you use the included plastic pick to apply to epoxy to the connection. If movement is possible during the curing process, you will need to tape down or otherwise secure the wires or components.

How do I figure out the shelf life of a product?

The shelf life of a product can be found on either the technical data sheet (TDS), available on the product page, or by looking on the certificate on conformance (COC). The COC can be downloaded by going to https://www.chemtronics.com/coc. Once you have the shelf life, you will need to add it to the manufacture date for a use-by date. The manufacture date can be identified by the batch number. The batch code used on most of our products are manufacture dates in the Julian Date format. The format is YYDDD, where YY = year, DDD = day. For example, 19200 translates to the 200th day of 2019, or July 19, 2019. This webpage explains and provides charts to help interpret our batch numbers: https://www.chemtronics.com/batch-codes.
