ODU offers special cost benefits with maximum functionality through the use of this surface optimization process:

Palladium-nickel is an alloy deposition from which a shiny L/alloy is deposited. Its composition includes some 60 percent palladium and 40 percent nickel or 80 percent palladium and 20 percent nickel. Thanks to the alloy proportion of nickel, these layers are significantly more cost-efficient than pure palladium layers.

  • Cost-efficient alternative to pure palladium
  • Gold substitute
  • Low contact resistance
