Silver cadmium oxide alloy AgCdO, refers to a silver-based alloy containing cadmium oxide.
Silver cadmium oxide alloy AgCdO is a silver-based alloy containing cadmium oxide, silver and cadmium oxide are immiscible. There are AgCdO5, AgCdO8, AgCdO10 and AgCdO15, etc.
Silver cadmium oxide alloy AgCdO has high electrical conductivity, good resistance to electrical wear and fusion welding, low and stable contact resistance, and arc extinguishing. It can be manufactured by or by oxidation-powder metallurgy, and can obtain alloys with microstructure and uniform distribution of cadmium oxide.
Silver cadmium oxide alloy AgCdO is used as a medium and high power electrical contact material for magnetic starters, high power relays, ignition switch contacts of electric welding machines, and aviation electrical contacts.
