Product Description

LOCTITE ECI 8001 E&C is a Positive Temperature Coefficient (PTC) screen printable conductive ink designed for applications where self-regulating heaters are required.

LOCTITE® ECI 8001 E&C is a screen printable ink formulated to rapidly heat to a specific threshold temperature and then maintain a constant temperature for the device. The self-regulating temperature of the bare ink is around 55 to 60ºC. It can be cured using hot air drying or infrared. It is ideal for use on PET substrates.

Physical Properties
Viscosity is a measurement of a fluid’s resistance to flow.

Viscosity is commonly measured in centiPoise (cP). One cP is defined as
the viscosity of water and all other viscosities are derived from this base. MPa is another common unit with a 1:1 conversion to cP.

A product like honey would have a much higher viscosity -around 10,000 cPs-
compared to water. As a result, honey would flow much slower out of a tipped glass than
water would.

The viscosity of a material can be decreased with an increase in temperature in
order to better suit an application
6500 mPa.s

Additional Information

LOCTITE ECI 8001 E&C can be dried using forced air or infrared systems. Higher temperatures for longer time exposure will improve the performance. Care should be taken with infrared. Too much energy can destroy the coating. Design drying rates for the maximum the substrate and production speeds can tolerate.
