    Abstract

    This specification covers 60% palladium-40% silver rod, wire, strip, and sheet material for electrical contacts. The material shall be finished by different methods like cold working, heat treatment or annealing, turning, grinding, and pickling. Materials shall conform to the requirements for chemical composition. Mechanical properties like ultimate tensile strength, elongation, and microhardness shall be determined.
