The following bibliographic material is provided to assist you with your purchasing decision:
This specification covers an alloy containing palladium, silver, copper, platinum, and nickel in the form of wire, rod, and strip for electrical contacts. The materials shall be processed by cold working, heat treating, annealing, turning, grinding, and pickling. The material shall conform to the required chemical composition of palladium, silver, copper, platinum, and nickel. The alloys shall conform to the required mechanical properties such as tensile strength, elongation, Knoop hardness, and Vickers hardness.
1.1 This specification covers an alloy containing palladium, silver, copper, platinum, and nickel in the form of wire, rod, and strip for electrical contacts.
1.2 The values stated in inch-pound units are to be regarded as standard. The values given in parentheses are mathematical conversions to SI units that are provided for information only and are not considered standard.
1.3 The following precautionary statement pertains to the test method portion only, Section This standard does not purport to address all of the safety concerns, if any, associated with its use. It is the responsibility of the user of this standard to become familiar with all hazards including those identified in the appropriate Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for this product/material as provided by the manufacturer, to establish appropriate safety and health practices, and determine the applicability of regulatory limitations prior to use. , of this specification:
