Conductive Adhesives

Conductive and Non-conductive Adhesive Overview


Conductive paints and conductive adhesive tapes are indispensable for SEM and FIB specimen preparation and specimen mounting. They enable quick sample mounting and deliver the conductivity needed for SEM and FIB applications. The selection of conductive adhesive include:

  • Specially formulated conductive paint and cements for SEM, FIB and lab applications
  • Double sided carbon tapes for mounting specimens
  • Conductive metal tapes for making grounding paths

The non-conductive adhesive are useful for sample preparation in vacuum systems and for application where conductivity is not required. The selection of non-conductive adhesives include:

  • UHV compatible single and double sided Kapton tapes
  • HV compatible single sided PET mylar tapes
  • Double sided adhesive SEM tabs
