Title (EN) ELECTRICAL CONTACTS
(FR) CONTACTS ELECTRIQUES
Abstract: front page image
(EN)An electrical contact of the type having a working surface and comprising a ductile metal and weld inhibiting material includes a wetting agent present in an amount sufficient to reduce the surface energy between said contact surface and the liquid phase of the ductile metal. Improved wettability of the surface results in reduced arc erosion due to the spattering loss of ductile metal. Also, described is a method for selecting and testing proposed additives.
(FR)Un contact electrique du type ayant une surface de travail et comprenant un metal ductile et un materiau empechant la soudure comprend un agent de mouillage present en une quantite suffisante pour reduire la tension superficielle entre ladite surface de contact et la phase liquide du metal ductile. La mouillabilite amelioree de la surface resulte en une reduction de l"usure produite par l"arc, due aux pertes par eclaboussure du metal ductile. Une methode pour selectionner et essayer des additifs proposes est egalement decrite.
