MG Total Ground Carbon Conductive Coating - 12oz


Part Number: MG-838-340G

Total Ground Carbon Conductive Coating
MG Part Number: 838-340G
Looking for the best way to make any work surface into a durable, anti-static work area? Look no further. This is the product for you!
The MG 838 Total Ground Carbon Conductive Coating is an economical, acrylic paint that is used to create conductive, static free surfaces with excellent characteristics. Coated surfaces reduce electromagnetic or radio frequency interference (EMI/RFI). The carbon in the coat resists rubbing off to the touch. Further, the cured coat is designed to withstand large temperature changes without cracking.

  • High Conductivity—Low Surface resistivity of 250 Ω/sq for one coat (1 mil)
  • Tough and durable coating
  • Carbon does not rub off
  • Stronger adhesion than water based coatings
  • Low VOC’s
The primary application of this carbon conductive spray is to ground working surfaces to avoid static, but it can also be used to provide low cost EMI/RFI shielding, as a conductive base for some electroplating process, or anywhere in a manufacturing process where it is necessary to impart conductivity to a surface.
The 838 coating adheres to most materials found on printed circuit assemblies; however, it is not compatible with contaminants like water, oil, and greasy flux residues that may affect adhesion. If contamination is present, clean the surface to be coated first. This product is designed to coat the following surfaces:
Adherence Compatibility
Acrylonitrile Butadiene Styrene (ABS) Chemically etches and adheres well to this substrate.
Polybutlylene Terephtalate (PBT) Chemically etches and adheres well to this substrate.
Polycarbonate Chemically etches and adheres well to this substrate.
Polyvinyl Acetate (PVA) Chemically etches and adheres well to this substrate.
Acrylics or acrylic paints Adheres well to clean surface
Polyurethane Adheres well to clean surface for most urethane types
Wood Adheres well with surface preparation

NOTE: Do not use on thin plastics or on plastics where you want to keep original surface intact. The 838 spray contains solvents is designed to chemically etch plastic surfaces to help adhesion by melding the acrylic coating into the plastic substrate. This prevents flaking or peeling.
