Conductive Paint

Unread postAuthor: sjog » Thu Dec 20, 2007 10:56 pm

Carbon paint, conductive. Has any one tried it? They advertise the silver pen. I've seen it on Burnt Lattke I think. Easy spark strip just paint.
Some other conductive stuff too.

Actually silver and gold are better conductors than copper, but those silver oxide pens are so expensive :?

I rmember a while ago someone popped a CD into a microwave, and used the resulting mangled CD as a spark strip...worked pretty well judging by the pics.

Silver oxide is a real bastard mate! It corrodes to quickly and has a really low flash point.

Thanks for the info

The copper strips looked easy w/self stick
Put a spiral of it up the chamber then make cuts creating tiny gaps...
