The influence of metallic phase are discharge on electrode surface was studied for breaking Ag contacts. A whole are duration, metallic phase are duration, contact resistance and electrode material mass change were measured when both conditions of air pressure and circuit current were varied. The result showed that both the material loss and transfer had a close relationship to the metallic phase are duration. The contact resistance increased as the are duration grew in the metallic phase are region, and it became high and almost constant when the are sustained until it transferred to the gaseous phase.
