Soldering isn’t your only option for an electrically conductive connection. MG Chemicals sells one alternative — the two-part silver conductive epoxy pictured above.

When the silver epoxy cures you’re left with a bond that’s not only high strength, but also highly conductive to electricity. You can use it to connect heat sensitive components, connect broken traces, or even bond heat sinks. The epoxy bonds well to metals, but it also bonds to glass, wood, paper, fiber and rubber.

One drawback to using this epoxy is that you can’t solder to it and you need to be careful soldering around it because it might melt. Another is that you have to wait 4 to 5 hours for it to cure.

Prices for MG Chemical’s two-part silver epoxy start at $25 for two 3mL syringes.

    Not such a new idea really. Check with any auto parts place. They sell a product that mixes up to reattach the leads to the in-the-glass-defrosters. No waiting for hours as I recall. Still, it’s only a small amount – like one repair – and will hit you for about 8 bucks.

    Works great for glass in cars, and for antenna re-attachments, this is the best product to hit us in a while, but as Jerry said not necessarily new. Also good for fixing broken e-toys

    Not good for laptop repairs.
