Add engineering, design, and creative appeal to your electrical circuits lesson
Blend design and technology while drawing a 'liquid wire' circuit. Nontoxic water-soluble paint provides a new way to engage in electronics. Paint dries at room temperature and is suitable as a cold solder. Teach resistance, circuitry, polarity, or voltage in a fun, creative way. Works with electrical components, prototyping materials, PCBs, microcontrollers, e-textiles, and conductive thread. Includes application and storing instructions, but no lab activities.
Use paint within 6 months of opening. Remove from most surfaces using soap and water. Circuit components such as LEDs, alligator clips, transistors, meters, batteries, or power source (up to 12-V DC) are sold separately.
The thinner the layer of paint the faster it dries. Also, conductivity increases as the paint dries. Allow drying time before testing projects. Surface resistivity is approximately 55 _/sq at 50 ' layer thickness.
Only available in black but retains its properties even if coated with another material. This creates a great opportunity for exploiting its material characteristics by using it as a graphical element alongside other colors.
Helps you teach the following Next Generation Science Standards Student Performance Expectations:
Make observations to provide evidence that energy can be transferred from place to place by sound, light, heat, and electric currents. (4-PS3-2)
Apply scientific ideas to design, test, and refine a device that converts energy from one form to another. (4-PS3-4)
Conservation of Energy and Energy Transfer (PS3.B)
Energy can also be transferred from place to place by electric currents, which can then be used locally to produce motion, sound, heat, or light. The currents may have been produced to begin with by transforming the energy of motion into electrical energy. (4-PS3-2, 4-PS3-4)
Top Customer Reviews
Using a 3X dissecting microscope, I was able to put a dab of this substance to bridge each of the 4 USB connections. Miracle of miracles, I was able to get the computer to recognize the damaged flash drive and download all of the files to my hard drive. I then uploaded these to a new flash drive.
While this product is not specifically designed to do what I needed to use it for, I thought it was worth noting the shortcomings I found. First, while the nozzle of the tube seems pretty small, the glob that came out was way too big for my needs. I had to break toothpicks and use the sharp end to apply the conductive substance to the contact area. Even then, I had to remove the excess. The other thing that surprised me is that the substance is black, not silver. So, the contrast with some of the items on the CB was difficult to discern some of the time.
However, it worked! I let it dry for 5 minutes, as the directions say. I am very grateful that this substance exists, even if it was not ideal for my application. Way overpriced? I can only compare the cost to the pricelessness of the data I was able to retrieve.
It's more like a thick paste than a paint. So it doesn't run, and is very easy to control. It stays where you put it. However, don't expect to "paint" it on with a brush. I would recommend applying it with a sewing pin, or a toothpick.
Also, when first applied, it does not immediately conduct. You have to wait about 15 minutes for it to mostly dry before it's fully conductive.
I've only tried it for very low amperage signal conections. I don't know what would happen with high amperage.
I would guess this is aimed at people who do not know how to solder. You would be far better off learning to solder then try to use this.. I am returning it because it's a waste of money If I could give it -5 stars I would..
I will say that the paint is pretty viscous, so if you need something a lot lower profile, you'll probably want to use say a CircuitWriter pen that applies much more thin layers. I would say this was similar to a elmer's glue in consistency and method of application (small nozzle). The paint is also jet black, for those of you who care what the paint will look like.
