Methods Of Investigation And Properties Of Powder Materials


Measurements have been made on the corrosion resistance, residual porosity, impact toughness, and structure of a silver-cadmium oxide composite caused by rolling and heat treatment of sintered powder blanks. The corrosion resistance has been examined for contacts composed of a rolled composite consisting of silver with 15% cadmium oxide and contacts of grade KMK A10m made from the same material by pressing and sintering.
