Electrical boxes....

What are the metal contacts (which the breakers mount to) inside electrical boxes made of? They seem really flimsy and light weight, but apparently they work well.

Depending on the brand of panel they can be aluminum or tin plated copper.

Depending on whether you have a SquareD QO box or a SquareD Homeline box, they are either aluminum or tin plated copper.
