Can I bond to my polycarbonate casing with a conductive shielding paint?

A conductive coating like a nickel paint can bond easily in general to a material like polycarbonate if it is solvent based. If it is water based then it will need a solvent based primer coating before application. This defeats the purpose of a water based conductive paint so better to stick to solvent based shielding coatings.

About Dr Lee Hitchens

Dr Hitchens has been working in the electronics industry and the area of conformal coatings for over 25 years in various areas including sales and technical support. He has also been training people for almost the same amount of time in all areas of conformal coating whether that is materials & equipment selection, process development or troubleshooting to help them solve their particular problem. Recently, he decided that the industry needed a specific place where all of the useful knowledge on conformal coatings could be collated for users to find easily and use in their own production process. So, Nexus was born and he began the Nexus eBook project.
