Title: Electrically conductive resinous material and radiation curable formulation for producing the same

Abstract: A radiation-curable formulation employs an electrically conductive filler comprised of elements of elongate form, which elements have surfaces that reflect the actinic radiation to which the photoinitiator employed is responsive. Silver-coated cylindrical fibers or rods will typically constitute the conductive filler, and solid deposits cured from the formulation may function as, for example, sealing elements, gaskets, and solder-like joints. In certain preferred embodiments the formulation will include an active oxygen free radical-generating catalyst, the presence of which enhances curing even though the reaction conditions are such that normal thermal catalysis temperatures are not attained.
