PELCO High Performance Silver Paste

Silver flakes in an inorganic silicate aqueous solution; a specially formulated adhesive for demanding bonding applications such as:

  • High temperature up to 927°C
  • Ultra high vacuum - no hydrocarbon, no VOCs
  • Cryogenic temperatures (suitability depends on matching properties)


The excellent thermal and electrical conductivity, coupled with the absence of hydrocarbons, make this product ideal for demanding specimen preparation in FESEM, XPS, ESCA, SIMS, Auger and other applications. High performance silver paste provides both high and thermal conductivity, with a silver particle size of 20um. Silver content >60% by weight. Cures at room temperature, but requires a 2 hour cure at 93°C to achieve high conductivity and strong bond. Must be fully cured before using this product at cryogenic temperatures. Soluble in water to 260°C. Above this temperature it becomes almost insoluble.

Troubleshooting: If not conducting; stir thoroughly to mix the settled silver particles through the paste.


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 20um, 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.
