Indium Corporation’s compounds are used in the battery industries to improve the operational efficiency in a variety of battery technologies. Alkaline batteries, some types of lithium ion batteries, and zinc air batteries are all examples where our compounds are used to:
- improve battery efficiency
- replace mercury
- act as an inhibitor to hydrogen outgassing
The indium compounds are used in a variety of ways inside the battery: Indium can be alloyed with other metal powders, plated onto connectors inside the battery, or added to the electrolyte.
Of specific interest to the battery industry are our following compounds:

In a previous blog I spoke about Large Ground Plane Voiding in Electronics Assembly and referred to a statistical tool called an Ishikawa Diagram. This tool helps map out a process and provide an excellent visual aid that helps show the potential defect causes and the effects the process variables can have. This particular Ishikawa Diagram displayed that reflow profile can have a large effect on voiding. Today I will dig into this area a bit further and talk about how we can minimize large ground plane solder voiding in electronic assemblywith differences in reflow profile.
Learn about the many factors associated with BTC voiding reduction.
Learn about halogen-free solder paste, including recommendations for paste selection based on specific needs.
