Abstract

The study deals with arc resistance of composite Cu–Cr system materials of various compositions. The microstructure of materials exposed to an electric arc was investigated. Despite varying initial chromium contents, the same structure was formed in the arc exposure zones of all the tested materials. View Full-Text
