The EM-Tec conductive paints, pastes and cements are selected for sample preparation use in electron microscopy, focused ion beam, electron microprobe and scanning probe applications. The EM-Tec conductive paints, pasts and cements offer different properties to cover a variety of applications. The current product line consists of:

Conductive paint and glues are ideal to make conductive paths to ground for SEM samples. Used for making contacts, conductive bonding of samples on specimen stubs or shielding surfaces of non-conducting samples. The EM-Tec conductive paint and cements are used for many applications besides electron microscopy in repairing contacts, tracks on circuit boards, prototyping, conductive lubrication, electrochemical plating and EMI/RFI shielding. The EM-Tec C30 premium water based conductive carbon paint is solvent free and should be preferred to avoid hydro-carbon contamination in the SEM.

    # 15-001130   EM-Tec C30 water based conductive carbon paint, 40g bottle

EM-Tec C30 water based conductive carbon paint, 40g bottle EM-Tec C30 is a premium, water based conductive carbon paint with fine dispersed graphite flakes (~3μm). The EM-Tec C30 carbon paint does not contain any hydro-carbon based solvents and is fully compatible with high vacuum (HV) systems and even UHV systems when dry. Due to its low viscosity, cracks and small gaps are easily filled. EM-Tec C30 shows good conductivity when dry. Ideal for mounting SEM specimens and making grounding paths. Samples can be easily removed afterwards due to its low mechanical strength. Good bonding properties on a wide variety of sample materials such as metals, rocks, concrete, ceramics, epoxies, wood and textiles. Other applications are lubrication on moving surfaces and shielding. EM-Tec C30 contains approx. 20% graphite in the solutions. On hydrophobic materials, we advise to use the solvent based carbon paints #15-001133 or 15-001139. Supplied in a 60cc glass bottle with 40g contents and a cap with brush.

    # 15-001133   EM-Tec C33 fast drying conductive carbon paint, 15g bottle

EM-Tec C33 fast drying conductive carbon paint, 15g bottle EM-Tec C33 is an extremely fast drying thin carbon paint (similar to aerosol sprays). EM-Tec C33 has been developed to cover large areas quickly with a thin conductive layer. Ideal for making grounding paths and for covering parts of non-conductive epoxy mounts. Due to its low viscosity it easily fills cracks and narrow gaps. EM-Tec C33 is one of the fastest drying carbon paint on the market. Samples can be removed relatively easily due to its low bonding strength. EM-Tec C33 dries very quickly; less suitable for flexible surfaces. Solvent is isopropanol, solution contains approximately 10% graphite with a polymer based binder. Moderate conductivity. Supplied in a 30cc glass bottle with 15g contents and a separate brush.
