Silver Zinc Oxide

MODICON offers complete range of Silver Zinc Oxide (AgZnO) Contacts & Contact Materials in diverse forms manufactured by Powder Metallurgical in form of wires or plates and further processed to rivets or tips (solid / bi-metal) to meet customer specific requirements.

Silver brazable layer is perfectly bonded to the contact material by a special process during extrusion suitable for manufacture of profiles and tips.

To facilitate the final attachment of these contacts, MODICON can provide a thin layer of brazing alloy (as per customer requirement) on the brazable side of the tip.

Silver Zinc Oxide contact Material was developed as a replacement for Silver Cadmium Oxide because of toxicity of Cadmium.

This material has high resistance to welding and arc erosion resistance.
