Description of the article:
Tifoo Copper conductive paint (400 ml) – the product features at a glance:
- 400 ml of conductive copper paint for electroplating
- for airbrush and brush
- makes non-conductive material conductive
- plating plants and natural objects
- easy and filigree application
This galvanic conductive paint on copper base from Tifoo allows you to plate works of art and gifts made of glass, pottery, plastic and a lot of other material with a bright layer of metal in a short time.
Just apply a thin layer of the conductive paint with a brush on the cleaned surface. The copper conductive paste dries until rub-proff in 10 to 15 minutes and therefore allows a quick treatment of the workpieces. The complete drying for perfect resistance on stressed surfaces takes about 12 to 36 hours at room temperature. The varnish can be diluted with butyl acetate. In the next step, the object is connected to a wire and copper-plated in the acidic copper electrolyte from Tifoo. A resistant copper layer will then be deposited. The last step can be used for nickel-plating, silver-plating or even gilding!
Thanks to its low price and the high electrical and thermical conductiveness, the conductive copper varnish is the perfect alternative to the conductive silver varnish. Please keep in mind that the first step has to consist in copper-plating in the acidic copper electrolyte because the conductive varnish won't be activated before. After copper-plating, the metal layer will be wear-resistant.
Suitable material: synthetic material, glass, pottery, plants, wood and a lot of other non-conductive material
Drying time: 5-15 minutes (rub-proof), 1-3 days (complete for maximal requirements)
20 mL are enough for a surface of up to one square metre - very efficient!

Excellent conductive paint
Copper conductive paint is excellent. Documentation less. I recommend using some primer and applying paint “wet to wet” for better adherence to base surface. Electroplating solution must be acidic. In manual isn’t any sign about how strong solution from tifoo is. So I recommend flashing plated object in some acid. I used diluted sulfuric acid.
