Sorry for the OT post but I don’t frequent other electronics forums and am hoping some of you have experience with this. I am repairing a torn flex circuit. I have the hardest part done - I used wires from solder wick - twisted a couple together, applied solder paste on pads scraped clear on the broken traces, and have all jumpered across nicely. But these wires have no strength. I have both flex pieces crazy glued to a thin metal base. I intend to free them from it using a razor blade after I apply either uv soldermask or jbweld over the joints. I’m afraid the JBWeld won’t adhere and afraid the UV solder mask won’t adhere or solidify. Maybe it will harden if I use really thin coats but likely doesn’t adhere to the kapton. Any advice?
