MG Chemical’s MGC-8331 Silver Conductive Epoxy is a two part epoxy, perfect for bonding heat sensitive components instead of soldering. Its high electrical conductivity makes it ideal for use on electrical components such as pc boards and heat sinks.
|MGC-8331-14G||Two 7g syringes, 3ml each||14g (0.35 oz)||0.031 lb|
- An excellent choice for repairing traces and creating jumpers on pc boards
- This epoxy can be used as a heat sink adhesive
- One year warranty
Q. Can I solder to Silver Conductive Epoxy?
A. No, Silver Conductive Epoxy has the temperature constraints of an epoxy and cannot be soldered to. Soldering to this product will cause it to melt.
Q. My 8331 product has a small discoloration. Is this a problem?
A. The discoloration is not a problem and will not affect the adhesive nor the conductive properties.

WHMIS Codes: B3, D2B
NFPA Ratings: Health 2 | Flammability 1 | Reactivity 0
HMIS Ratings: Health 2 | Flammability 1 | Reactivity 0
Eyes: Causes irritation.
Skin: Prolonged exposure may cause skin irritation. May cause allergic reaction in some individuals.
Inhalation: At room temperature, exposure to vapors is unlikely due to physical property of low volatility. Higher temperatures may generate vapor levels sufficient to cause irritation to the respiratory tract (nose, throat, and lungs).
Ingestion: Single dose oral toxicity is low. Amounts ingested incidental to industrial handling are not likely to cause injury; however, ingestion of large amounts may be harmful.
Chronic: Chronic inhalation or ingestion of silver salts may cause argyria characterized by a permanent blue-gray discoloration of the eyes, skin, mucous membranes, and internal organs. Inhalation and/or of fumes may cause metal fume fever, which is characterized by flu-like symptoms with metallic taste, fever, chills, cough, weakness, chest pain, muscle pain and increased white blood cell count
