Contacts with a corrosion-resistant gold surface

Mühldorf am Inn, May 13, 2020

ODU expands its range of contacts with gold‐plated versions.

Next to platinum, gold is the most corrosion‐resistant of all the precious metals. Even when exposed to challenging weather conditions for prolonged periods, it does not corrode. This means that its contacting properties do not degrade. Thanks to this extraordinary durability, gold is the ideal material for electrical contacts.

Due to their high resistance to environmental influences and their inertness, gold coatings can now be found in numerous fields of application – in traditional signaling applications in industry, as a particularly durable and robust connection for military and security solutions, and as a permanently reliable contact in medical technology.
