Production Name: Silver Zinc Oxide Solid Contact Rivets
Materials: AgZnO (Silver Zinc Oxide)
Application: Mainly used in circuit breakers, especially in universal circuit breakers. Other fields of application are motor protective switches, residual current circuit breakers and AC relays.
Product Description: A high resistance against contact welding characterizes Silver Zinc Oxide materials. They also show a good resistance against arc erosion. Contact resistance of AgZnO tends to be higher than that of AgCdO. AgZnO can be produced by means of pre-oxidation-sintering–extruding, mixing-compacting-sintering techniques as well as by internal oxidation. AgZnO materials are environment-protective materials. A solid rivet is the kind of contact which is entirely made of contact material-usually silver or silver alloys. A solid rivet is designed to be staking to a piece of carrier to form an assembly. Solid rivets are applied on occasions which small diameter rivets are needed and small diameter rivets cannot be made as composites.
