Does the liquid metal can be conductive?How about the conductive performance of mercury slip ring ?

Some customer reviewed senring’s mercury slip ring series, and was concerned liquid metal if can be conductive?We have clarified and will share the information for more people.

Most of metal is conductive (except special researched non-conductive metal ), also include liquid metal mercury. The metal has a best temperature when conductive, with the increase by temperature, conductive performance will be weakened. That it is to say the metal changed to liquid, the conductive performance will be weaker than under solid.
