I've used this to repair a few circuits. First one was my multitester - ammeter stopped working, opened it up and could see where some solder had flaked off the board where a connection was made with that instead of a trace in the board.
I've primarily used this as a solder substitute for assembling battery packs and making repairs where soldering was difficult or impossible. The product is almost like a conductive glue - it sets up pretty hard and with mild adhesion. If several coats are applied it does have decent strength, at least enough to handle the connection gently. Be sure to allow it to dry completely between coats and before testing or reinforcing the connection (its hardly conductive before drying, which is good if you screw up). Once it is set up I put a thin coat of jb weld over it to physically secure the connection.
This has allowed me to repair several devices that would otherwise have been junk, for example, a pet collar that could not be disassembled and had a broken power connection to the board. It is awesome for battery packs. I can wire them together instead of using AA battery holders, which are bulkier, restrict you to the shapes available and have a higher resistance. I just finished assembling nearly 200 nicad AAs and used less than two pens. Radioshack has this same product for $10.
I use it too fast for it to dry up on me. There is a thinner/cleaner available and the same stuff can be bought in little jars.
Wipe the tip before storing, store it with the tip pointed up and it won't get plugged.Read more ›
Shake the bottle, remove the cap, press the tip against a surface, squeeze the tube and some goo comes out. It's about the consistency of Elmer's glue. It's conductive. It dries in about 5-10 minutes. It's a modest glue with silver particles mixed in it. If I want additional strength, I'll use a toothpick or straight pin to add some Shoe Goo (silicone, slightly flexible) or a little dab of hot-melt glue once everything is electrically secure.
To create a trace as thin as you like, cover the surrounding area with two strips of scotch tape so there's a thin gap between them. Squeeze a small dot on a piece of scrap paper, pick up a bit with a toothpick or straight pin, and paint the work area or just apply directly to the work from the tube. When it's dry, just peel off the tape and you'll have an absurdly thin, perfect, conductive trace.
As an experiment, I once created a circuit that fit entirely on the top of a 9-volt battery snap -- that's a pretty small area for a handbuilt circuit. It consisted of two 16-pin integrated circuits (LM556 timers), 8 surface-mount capacitors, 4 surface-mount resistors, 4 LED's (that flashed sequentially when triggered), wire connections, ground and power buss lines, and a piece of wire used as a switch. The twin buss lines were laid on top of the IC's, and the capacitors, resistors and wires were all connected directly to the IC's legs. Altogether there were 36 connections made with this stuff. It was actually pretty easy to do.
This level of construction is impossible without Circuit Writer.
It's also perfect for electromagnetic sealing of mating surfaces used in radio-frequency circuits.Read more ›
In some places the circuit board sheeting with the copper traces (lines) on it was raised and wavy and since you need to press a bit hard on the pen's tip to make the stuff flow, I slid a wood ruler under it to provide support under the bad spots and then drew in new lines. I fixed 4 bad places and became concerned with one bigger one (1 Inch long) that didn t want to work or show a circuit when I tried using a tester. HOWEVER, as soon as it dried I had a compleated circuit !
I did not have a hair dryer to heat the repairs like the instructions said to do, but did use a small portable bath room heater to help speed things up. A hair dryer would have been perfect.
This circuit board is not available to buy, so this was really important for me to fix as 4 of 5 lights were out, and with no experience except reading about this type stuff on line, I choose this pen. A GOOD CHOICE. And it worked very good, and is fairly easy too. Shake well and often and go fix it !
