Electrically Conductive Adhesives

Ablestik 56C


Electrically conductive adhesives are ideal for use in electrical interconnect, thermal and structural bonding applications for improved reliability in electronic systems. They can be used as a solder replacement or for the repair of individual electrical interconnects.


Electrically conductive adhesives are not just limited to bonding components onto PCBs or die attach, they can be very useful for other electronic applications where substrates are temperature sensitive, such as for touch-panels, LCD displays, coating/bonding RFID chips and mounting LEDs.

Applications include:

  • PCB repair where the PCB cannot be put back through the solder process

  • SMD mounting

  • EMI/RFI shielding

  • Circuit repairs

  • Creating flexible tracks to carry power and/or data

  • Flip chip attachments

  • Grounding

Frequently Asked Questions

What is an electrically conductive adhesive?

An electrically conductive adhesive is an epoxy resin mixed with a conductive compound (usually silver) and is used to form a conductive join between surfaces or components.

Why should I use a conductive epoxy?

Conductive epoxies are used when the risk of thermal and mechanical cracking is very high or when there are concerns about damaging heat sensitive components which can occur when using hot solder.

Do you stock any room temperature cure conductive epoxies?

We supply Ablestik 56C, a tried and tested conductive silver epoxy. Along with Catalyst 9, this will be cured in 24 hours at room temperature, even quicker with a modest increase in temperature.
