Work Hardened 88-Silver 12-Tin-Oxide Alloy

Work hardened 88-silver 12-tin-oxide is 88-silver 12-tin-oxide in the cold worked (strain hardened) condition. The graph bars on the material properties cards below compare work hardened 88-silver 12-tin-oxide to: precious metal electrical contact alloys (top), all alloys in the same category (middle), and the entire database (bottom). A full bar means this is the highest value in the relevant set. A half-full bar means it's 50% of the highest, and so on.
