Overview

Rave Scientific offers M-Tec conductive paints, pastes and cements are selected for sample preparation use in electron microscopy, focused ion beam, electron microprobe and scanning probe applications. The EM-Tec conductive paints, pasts and cements offer different properties to cover a variety of applications. The current product line consists of:

Conductive paint and glues are ideal to make conductive paths to ground for SEM samples. Used for making contacts, conductive bonding of samples on specimen stubs or shielding surfaces of non-conducting samples. The EM-Tec conductive paint and cements are used for many applications besides electron microscopy in repairing contacts, tracks on circuit boards, prototyping, conductive lubrication, electrochemical plating and EMI/RFI shielding. The EM-Tec C30 premium water based conductive carbon paint is solvent free and should be preferred to avoid hydro-carbon contamination in the SEM.

EM-Tec C30 is a premium, water based conductive carbon paint with fine dispersed graphite flakes (~3μm). The EM-Tec C30 carbon paint does not contain any hydro-carbon based solvents and is fully compatible with high vacuum (HV) systems and even UHV systems when dry. Due to its low viscosity, cracks and small gaps are easily filled. EM-Tec C30 shows good conductivity when dry. Ideal for mounting SEM specimens and making grounding paths. Samples can be easily removed afterwards due to its low mechanical strength. Good bonding properties on a wide variety of sample materials such as metals, rocks, concrete, ceramics, epoxies, wood and textiles. Other applications are lubrication on moving surfaces and shielding. EM-Tec C30 contains approx. 20% graphite in the solutions. On hydrophobic materials, we advise to use the solvent based carbon paints #15-001133 or 15-001139. Supplied in a 60cc glass bottle with 40g contents and a cap with brush.

EM-Tec C33 is an extremely fast drying thin carbon paint (similar to aerosol sprays). EM-Tec C33 has been developed to cover large areas quickly with a thin conductive layer. Ideal for making grounding paths and for covering parts of non-conductive epoxy mounts. Due to its low viscosity it easily fills cracks and narrow gaps. EM-Tec C33 is one of the fastest drying carbon paint on the market. Samples can be removed relatively easily due to its low bonding strength. EM-Tec C33 dries very quickly; less suitable for flexible surfaces. Solvent is isopropanol, solution contains approximately 10% graphite with a polymer based binder. Moderate conductivity. Supplied in a 30cc glass bottle with 15g contents and a separate brush.

EM-Tec C39 is a strong conductive carbon cement based on fine graphite flakes with an acrylic binder. EM-Tec C39 exhibits excellent bonding properties on a large variety of materials such as metals, plastics, ceramics, epoxies, rubber, glass, wood and textiles. Ideally suited for making grounding paths and to bond SEM samples on sample stubs. The tough acrylic binder reduces material loss; can be used to make permanent bonds. It has the consistency of a thin paste. Dries relatively quickly, depending on thickness; drying goes quicker with moderate heat up to 65°C. Can be used on flexible surfaces. Solvent is acetone, solution contains approximately 20% graphite, acrylic based binder. EM-Tec C39 shows good conductivity when dry. Supplied in a 30cc glass bottle with 25g contents and separate brush.

The EM-Tec NI41 conductive glue with nickel is an excellent alternative when silver or carbon cement are not required. It is a strong acrylic based glue with excellent bonding properties, good conductivity and affordable pricing. Same tough acrylic binder used for the carbon and silver cement. Conductivity is between silver and carbon conductive cements. Can be used for permanent bonding of SEM samples to sample stubs. It has the consistency of a paste. Dries relatively quickly, depending on thickness; drying goes quicker with moderate heat up to 65°C. Can be used on flexible surfaces. Solvent is acetone, solution contains approximately 50% nickel, acrylic based binder. EM-Tec NI41 shows very good conductivity when dry. Supplied in a 30cc glass bottle with 25g contents and separate brush.
