Conductive and non-conductive adhesives

Conductive paints and adhesive tapes are indispensable for specimen preparation and mounting for SEM and FIB applications. They provide a very convenient means of quick sample mounting while giving the conductivity needed for SEM and FIB applications.

Conductive adhesives:

  • Specially formulated conductive paints and cements
  • Double sided carbon tapes for mounting specimens
  • Conductive metal tapes for making grounding paths


Non-conductive adhesives:

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

Non-conductive adhesives are useful for sample preparation in vacuum systems and for applications where conductivity is not required.
