I recently learned there will be a new requirement to do away with use of cadium material in products(green-peace). The product I am using at this time is a NEMA starter where the power contact material is a silver cadium oxide. The cadium material provides great electrical life performance, however in looking at other materials such as Silver Nickel and Silver Tin who in the starter manufacturing industry has started the conversion using other materials than silver cadium for NEMA starters?
