I was interested in using this stuff too but check out the feedback for a similar product at All Electronics first before buying. It sounds like it's more of a conductive paint and not really good for strong joints like you would use solder for, though it's useful for other applications like fixing PC traces and conductive keypads.

Is this the same as LePages liquid solder I wonder?

Here is a link to the All Electronics (located in USA) conductive glue:

I've bought lots of other good stuff from All Electronics, but have not tried their conductive glue.

That "wire glue" is widely available on EBAY.
Some even states it is conductive paint rather than glu in the small print.

There is also conductive epoxy -- Silver Epoxy Kit-14 grams-CONDUCTIVE when cured on eBay (end time 11-Apr-10 21:52:06 BST)


I tried this ages ago to fix a heated rear screen in my car.
