  • Properties Of Electrical Contact


Jul 29,2021
Electrical contacts are generally made from metals with high electrical conductivity, except in applications such as high-power equipment brushes where abrasive wear is expected. The most commonly used metal surfaces for contact alloys are silver, copper, gold, platinum, and palladium. Tungsten, nickel, graphite, and molybdenum are materials that enhance the structural properties of highly conductive metals and some are used individually for specialized contacts and components.

Important properties of electrical contact are conductivity, corrosion resistance, hardness, current load, form, and size. Many of these are determined by inherent characteristics of the material. Electrical contacts are present in any system in which a transfer of electricity occurs. Specific examples include circuit breakers, relays, switches, and electrical discharge machining (EDM) applications.
