The potential advantages of ruthenium plating are becoming increasingly appreciated in the electrical contact field. By comparison with rhodium, electrodeposited ruthenium is much less costly and possesses very similar properties of extremely high hardness and resistance to corrosion but with superior resistance to wear; while the dramatic increase in the price of gold has further emphasised the importance of evaluating its merits of low contact resistance and much lower density, offering great economy for a given thickness of deposit.
