    Compress indium between the arrows to form a hermetic seal

    Have you ever tried to form a seal using an epoxy where you dispense the material, clamp the seal shut, and VOILA! It's attached!?


     


    You can do the same thing with indium in a wire, washer, or frame form.  The process is no more difficult, it's cleaner, and with some control, the seal is hermetic.  


     

    This process has been used by many who have looked for a high reliability seal that doesn't leak yet many of you are still asking questions about it.  If you have a sealing application and would like more information on this process, feel free to contact me or look over our indium sealing application note.
