This family of sticky adhesives, known for their high tac and vacuum "compatibility", are in the form of double sided conductive adhesive products. They were originally developed for those kinds of samples that could be altered or changed by exposure to the volatile solvents present in most silver paint products. For example, for the mounting of dry powders, any of these adhesives could be the adhesive system of choice. They are also valuable for the mounting of many other samples that could be harmed by solvent vapors, for example, paper samples, certain textile fabrics, porous form samples, just to mention a few. There have been countless innovative applications for these conductive sheets for the mounting of samples for SEM.
