Liquid & Tape Conductive Adhesives for Electrical Interconnection
8/8/2013

Electrically conductive adhesives (ECA) can solve a variety of challenges for electrical and electronic devices, such as EMI/RFI shielding and static dissipation.

This was a very informing article Jeremy. I find it interesting that many of those conductive adhesives can be used with thermoplastics made with 3D printers. This opens a host of possibilities in fast prototyping many electronic projects as well as being incredibly affordable to do so.

vimalkumarp, I agree that medical applications make a lot of sense here.

Greg, I agree: the cool thing about nanomaterials is that they can be designed for much better optimization of various characteristics, such as better conductivity for less energy usage.

As you have rightly pointed out many materials are increasingly being asked to perform multiple functions will offer solutions to many of the tough industrial problems. Thanks for the nice post.

The fact that Electrically conductive adhesives  can solve a variety of challenges for electrical and electronic devices, such as EMI/RFI shielding and static dissipation mabe leveraged to solve many of the design challenges. This may be really useful in medical devices too.

Yes, the nanomaterial development is intriguing.  Perhaps it will eventually offer good conductivity at a lower price and better performance than the more traditional conductive materials.

Thanks for a good overview of what's being done in this growing area. It seems that many materials are increasingly being asked to perform multiple functions, in this case hold things together and conduct electricity where you want it to go. I was also intrigued to see the mention of nanomaterials.
