TE Connectivity’s GreenSilver contact surface tech claims improved sustainability


TE Connectivity has announced its GreenSilver contact surface technology for connectors, which features a green coating that delivers needed performance while improving sustainability. 

The GreenSilver contact surface technology on TE’s new connectors uses less precious metal, less energy and less water, and also helps to reduce pollution by improving performance in EVs. It’s designed to enhance connector performance in high-voltage applications for EV powertrains by enhancing vibration tolerance and heat dissipation, withstanding temperatures of up to 180 degrees Celsius. It’s also suited for low-power and signal transmission purposes in miniaturized connectivity.

“With GreenSilver contact surface technology, TE has achieved an automotive industry breakthrough by delivering an alternative to a process for automotive contacts that has been used for over 100 years,” said Pedro Iglesia Gonzalez, Product Manager at TE. “GreenSilver technology enables a highly stable electrical connection under very high vibration and temperature conditions, while at the same time offering significant environmental sustainability benefits in comparison to traditional electro-galvanic plating techniques.”
