The scientists have invented a new product that is electric paint, it is more likely a normal acrylic paint but it is conductive in nature.
Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint is just like any other water-based paint… except that it’s electrically conductive! This means that you can actually paint wires onto things like models, clothes, furniture, walls, almost anything you can think of. Standard acrylic or water-based paints can even be used alongside Electric Paint to act as insulation or to create multi-layer circuitry!
Oh yeah, and now? It comes in a pen! Bare’s Electric Paint Pens are a great electronics prototyping tool for makers of all ages. Nontoxic and water-soluble, they can be used without gloves or mask. Once applied the paint dries quickly at room temperature, and can be removed with soap and water.
It helps in Painting wires or sensors directly onto almost any material, safely and quickly cold solder components, repair small devices and PCBs or create switches and circuit designs straight onto any material.
Some features of Bare Conductive’s Electric Paint are –
- Water-based, non-toxic and dries at room temperature.
- Electric Paint can be applied to a wide variety of materials, including (but certainly not limited to) paper, cardboard vellum, wood, metal, plaster, some rubbers, plastics and many textiles.
- Soap and warm water will take Electric Paint off of most surfaces.
- Can last years if treated properly and kept dry.
