Electrodeposited gold composites

Particle-hardened gold for enhanced wear resistance in sliding contact applications

Abstract

Co-deposited refractory carbide particles in gold electroplates have been shown to enhance the hardness, the tensile strength and the sliding wear resistance of the gold. The low electrical contact resistance of gold is not significantly impaired by the presence of the carbide particles.
