The surface layer of a newly manufactured vacuum switch with two-phase composition contacts, e.g., Cu+2-percent Bi or Cu+2-percent Te, exhibits a strong arc stability behavior, which tends to decrease with the erosion of the surface layer. In comparison, unalloyed metals, Cu or W, and single-phase compositions, Cu2Te, show a homogeneous arc stability behavior.
