Silver cadmium oxide and silver tin oxide are produced in sheet and wire products. Consequently, they are available as discrete contacts, contact rivets, clad contacts, and contact tapes, as well as in the complete range of clad strips and their by-products. When welding or brazing either of these materials, it is typical to employ a pure silver backing. This assists in the bonding of the contact to the adjacent metal substrate.
The asterisks (*) in this table represent the fully annealed condition. The compositions listed are generally considered the industry standards. The listed values represent the typical properties of these materials. Modifications to meet special applications may be possible.
