Conductive silver pastes

Ferro conductive silver pastes offer high resistivity, high abrasion, UV and corrosion resistance with options of various drying rate and handling strength mediums. Since Ferro debuted its conductive silver paste on the VW Golf in 2003 many automakers have introduced fine-line heat grids on their own models, including the Porsche 911. Other European automakers were quick to follow suit, such as Skoda and Audi. The market continues to grow for Ferro’s lead-free silver paste.
