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?
