Re: [OT] Best glue to repair lifted trace?


I use Circuit Works CW2500 epoxy to repair traces on a PCB and overcoat the result.  Its a good epoxy but somewhat expensive.  All epoxy "glues" will melt when soldering so plan accordingly.  In your case I would 1.  remove the connector, 2.  use CW2500 to put the trace back on the board, 3.  scrape mask off a strip of the conductor after its repaired, 4.  solder a small wire or strip of copper tape to the repaired trace, 5. Put the connector (better, a new one) back on the board, 6. use CW2500 to overcoat the repaired trace.
Amazon and Newark sell CW2500 but I have no idea what the shipping might be to Austria.

Silicone will rip with mechanical stress. Epoxy is much stronger.

That's the plan, unfortunately I can't find an acceptable source of
high temperature resistant, electrically insulating epoxy in Austria.
The closest is in Germany, but that's still 10 euro shipping.

Do you have automobile-supply stores in Austria such as this one...
If so, you might investigate whether they sell high-temperature silicone
gasket sealant such as...

This might do the job.
