PELCO® High Performance Nickel Paste

Nickel flakes in an inorganic silicate aqueous solution providing a conductive adhesive for bonding applications such as:

  • High temperature up to 538°C (1000°F)
  • Ultra high vacuum – no hydrocarbon, no VOC’s
  • Cryogenic temperatures (suitability depends on matching properties)

The good thermal and electrical conductivity of this adhesive, coupled with the absence of hydrocarbons, makes this product suitable for demanding specimen preparation in surface science and SEM applications. Nickel particle size is 20µm, nickel content is >60%. The PELCO® High Performance Nickel Paste needs to be cured for 2 hours at 93°C (200°F) to achieve final electrical and mechanical properties. It is soluble in water to 260°C (500°F), above this temperature it becomes almost insoluble.
