SilverInk is often used as a contact paste for electrochemical testing, and isespecially useful for performing these types of tests at lower temperatures(less than 850Â°C). The silver ink is screen printable, for ease of application.It also can be used as a reference electrode.
Silverink is also helpful for reducing resistance of electrical connections. ThisSilver ink is included in the SOFC Planar Test Fixtures (5 cm X 5 cm and 10 cmX 10 cm) to help increase the facilitate electrical contact between the currentleads manifolds.
â¢ Metal: Silver (Ag)
â¢ Quantity: 10 grams â¢ Solids Loading: 70% Silver by weight
Typical Use Guidelines:
â¢ This is a great inkfor making electrical connections for electrochemical testing of fuel cells,ceramic substrates, electrochemical materials, and metals.
â¢ Stirring the ink before use is highly recommended. For best results, the inkshould be stirred with a spatula or a sonic wand to achieve an even consistencyprior to use.
â¢ This ink is typically fired at 750Â°C or 850Â°C for 1 hour to ensure adhesionprior to testing at the desired test temperature.
â¢ This ink can be used for screen printing for generating electricalconnections for wire attachments.
