    If you have a use for it, yes; otherwise no.

    Hahaha Thats very pragmatic

    Pikkie it's ~$8 the only way you'll know if you like it is if you buy it. The question with it though is what its resistance per cm, or so. It be pretty useless if the paste sucks up all the power before the LED gets its fill.

    I personally don't see that stuff being good at items 2 and 3. 2 Just use a sodding iron XD
    as for 3 this stuff is really good at that

    Silver paste

    My two cents. Buy it and report back to us :)

    I mean to re-do bad or oxidized carbon contacts in a tv and dish remote controle. As it is recommended for it. Remote controls work better in dry summer months but now here in RSA its winter it should... I hope it do a better contact. Thou this so-called paint is water based I wonder. Ok I'll get and try it anyhow.

    Oh for fixing remotes the silver paste works well.

    Pikkie : Try a pencil. Rub the eraser onto the contacts, the tip to refill the faded carbon on the elastomeric buttons.
    If not happy on longevity, punch/make aluminium foil tiny discs and glue on top of the faded carbon surfaces of the button.
    If your remote shows some oily deposits on the board contacts, wash with soap, dry with a fan and reassemble, and keep the remote wrapped in the same kind of clear bag they are shipped, or on 'saran' wrap.
