When I get the stuff, I'll try it out on various surfaces. Curious to see what materials is adheres to. I'll also try it with solder, on the off chance that it actually takes a solder bead. I've also got some Cerrobend sitting around. I'll see how the two interact. I'm also interested in what the practical limits are on trace width.
Any other suggestions, thoughts?
I called the guy at the site and queried him about whether this stuff could take current. He says that it is as good as the silver conductive paint which can be used to patch PCB's but that it doesn't have the same ability to resist abrasion. If you have your circuitry where it can't be abraded, however, it should work just fine.
Now I've just got to figure out how to convert their sheet resistivity measure (ohms per square) to something that will let me figure out how wide a trace I have to paint to handle a given current.
Oh well, that sort of thing is fun. :-)
