How isn't liquid steel conductive? I'm sorry that I'm wrong, I had no idea... I guess I exposed the true meaning of assume...

ass out of u and me... mostly me :)

Does it use some type of steel oxide?

I'm willing to bet that all the agents that make the resin goopy, plus the hardener are what give it's insulator-like properties.

But hey, I could be wrong.

Whats freaky is that Nova has a weird guy holding a gun to his head and grinning in his avatar :shock:


Steel epoxy etc is not conductive, it may well have metal particles in it but the particles are locked in the matrix of the epoxy stuff and not in one continuous mass so cannot conduct (without extreme voltage anyway).

<a href="http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Mark_Brandon_Read">This</a> should explain Hotwired. :D

Edit: The guy in the avatar is an actor (Eric Bana) he played Chopper Read superbly in the movie "Chopper".

Good quality marine epoxy is generally resistant to chemical solvents and caustic/acidic solutions, however it does tend to soften with high temperatures.
