Hey! Today I want to test conductive plastic
How conductive is it? How will it behave during electrolysis? Can an electronic circuit be printed?
I wanted to create a conductive plastic myself. You just need to add graphite.
But my friend sent me a parcel with a ready-made conductive filament.

The resistance of this plastic is 70 ohms. Not bad! I will assemble a test bench.
First, I'll try the passage of a direct electric current. I'll connect the LEDs that I found in the trash. They work quite well. And what if you try 220v alternating current. and turn on the incandescent lamp? Works. I decided to try connecting the TV through plastic. Oh Miracle, tv works too)

Now I will deal with electrochemistry, or rather electrolysis.
As a cathode, plastic, the solution will be prepared from copper sulfate. I use a copper plate as a positive electron. It works, but not exactly what I wanted. I ran an experiment with several details. Immersed from 10 minutes to several hours. I think other metals such as gold and silver can be applied to the test samples.

I'll try to print a plastic electronic board. I will assemble PVM on the NE555 chip ..
On this microcircuit, you can assemble a lot of all kinds of electronic circuits. PLA substrate dielectric. When printing tracks, I changed to conductive plastic
The resistance of the tracks is fine. 50 ohm.
It is unusual to attach electronic components directly to plastic. And use the filament as a solder. Everything is working!.
I believe that the future belongs to such material.
How much non-ferrous metals can you save. For example, RFID tags can be replaced with plastic.

These three experiments are superficial.
For each of the positions, of course, you need to study in depth in order to achieve a result.

Do not be ill! God bless you!
