I. Pure silver contact (Ag)
Pure silver has a high level of electrical and thermal conductivity, good plasticity and arc corrosion resistance, as well as a very low contact resistance. It is easily soldered and is the ideal contactor material for continuous, enclosed electric connectors. It is one of the most widely used materials in small capacity and low voltage electrical appliances, such as automatic control switches, thermostats, baking machines, oven, timers, thermal relays, and computers.
II. Ag/Cu bimetal rivet This contact has good electrical conductivity and its surface is not liable to oxidization. The addition of 3 - 28% copper may remarkably improve the silver's flame resistance. Hence, copper contact material may be used in current strength up to 16A. The addition of copper, Especially of high copper content, for example 10%, will greatly reduce material transferring during DC working conditions. It is widely used in AC contactors, relays, electric tool switches, buttons, timers, and other ousehold electrical appliances.
