A new ruthenium plating bath has been developed which gives bright, adherent and pore-free deposits at high cathode efficiencies. Electro-deposited ruthenium has considerable potential applications in the field of light duty electrical contacts where mechanical wear is a problem, particularly for sliding surfaces such as slip rings.
