Abstract

A flat or curved element is provided with a gold contact surface by 1. Gluing gold leaf of desired configuration to the element with a conductive glue; or by 2. Adhering gold leaf of desired configuration to one side of a two-faced conductive adhesive strip and then applying the strip to the element.

Making Printed Circuits

A flat or curved element is provided with a gold contact surface by

1. Gluing gold leaf of desired configuration to the element with a conductive glue; or by

2. Adhering gold leaf of desired configuration to one side of a two-faced conductive adhesive strip and then applying the strip to the element.

This method obviates the need for conventional, relatively expensive electroplating techniques and equipment. Moreover, the element and contact surface are not subjected to the action of electroplating chemicals. A nonporous contact surface is obtained for assuring reliable contact action.
