Silver Tungsten Contacts – Properties, Benefits & Applications
SEO | 15th Feb, 2019
Silver tungsten material has good welding and corrosion resistance; it is widely used in industrial and domestic circuit breakers. Various types of silver-tungsten provide higher silver with higher electrical conductivity, and higher tungsten makes it more aggressive and efficient.
Silver tungsten material is widely used in the fields of aerospace, aviation, electronics, electric power, metallurgy, machinery, sports equipment and so on. It is widely used in high temperature resistant materials, high voltage switchgear alloy, electrodeposited electrodes and microelectronic materials.
Different silver tungsten has different properties, such as AgW50 not only has good conductivity and good processing properties, but also has the characteristics of high melting point, high hardness, and good resistance to arc erosion, welding performance, low material transfer. The biggest feature of silver tungsten is its strong resistance to high current arc.
