Could use it for shielding of plastic enclosures too, currently available paints flake off. This they said doesn't deteriorate.

@Wnderer, I don't think the product is intended to be use as a permanent part of any circuit, but it makes prototyping easier as you can use it for quick connections on an existing PCB.

Electric Paint is an excellent educational tool and can be fun to use for school science projects that do not require sophisticated equipment.

If you go to the website, they say it also works as an adhesive, but there is no data sheet. It just a toy without a datasheet.

@hm: good question! There are work arounds for attaching parts to conductive inks / paints without soldering -you can use the inks themsevles to attach the device to the trace / pad.

Do we need to solder parts before or after? If soldering is not allowed, what are options for compatibl adhesives?

NEXT UPCOMING BROADCAST
In conjunction with unveiling of EE Times’ Silicon 60 list, journalist & Silicon 60 researcher Peter Clarke hosts a conversation on startups in the electronics industry. One of Silicon Valley's great contributions to the world has been the demonstration of how the application of entrepreneurship and venture capital to electronics and semiconductor hardware can create wealth with developments in semiconductors, displays, design automation, MEMS and across the breadth of hardware developments. But in recent years concerns have been raised that traditional venture capital has turned its back on hardware-related startups in favor of software and Internet applications and services. Panelists from incubators join Peter Clarke in debate.
