    Conductive glue

    Anyone know where I can find conductive glue for electrical repairs, mainly as a replacement to solder. Need to glue something back to a PCB board.

    They have this in America, you can pop into any repair shop and get it, yet Hong Kong, being a dinosaur, doesn't carry this.

    If you know what I'm talking about and know where to get it that'd be great.

    To be more specific, I'm not looking for solder, or any sort of heat-repair tools. Not looking for super glue, not looking for electrical tape. It's conductive glue, so it made for electrical repairs so that it can properly conduct electricity while providing little to no resistance.

    Any help appreciated in this search.

    Thank you in advance.

    I spent weeks looking for specialist glue (in my case, electrically insulating/thermally conductive stuff). Have you tried the computer malls?

    I eventually found what I was looking for, but it would have been far easier to order something over the internet. You'll pay a little more for shipping, but you won't spend hours walking around Hong Kong frustrated at how all the stores carry identical and limited stock. Ebay is usually an easy option.

    BTW, this place in HK seems to carry a good range of obscure electronic supplies.

    ... including conductive glues. Good link - I'd forgotten about RS.
