Conductive Electroplating Ink
Think & Tinker conductive ink is a precise blend of powdered silver and three types of carbon in a proprietary polymer resin. The resin is optimized for adhesion to a variety of printed circuit substrate materials. The ratio of silver to carbon has been adjusted to insure smooth, defect-free electro-deposition of copper on the barrels (walls) of all through-holes. Fumed silica is added during formulation as a thixotropic thickening agent to minimize settling and separation during shipping and storage.
