Indium Corporation sells compounds based on the elements indium, germanium, gallium, and tin. These compounds are used in the manufacturing process of a number of high-tech devices, as these elements serve as crucial building blocks in semiconductor chips, electronic components, batteries, and other complex electronic products.
The compounds we make are inorganic compounds with challenging specifications. You can download the spec sheets from the area below - these are a great starting point to learn about our various materials. It is important to note, however, that your application determines what is the best specification. A compound like gallium oxide, for example, has five different crystal forms, only one of which might be suitable for your specific application. In addition, choosing the right starter material for our process will affect the amount of trace impurities. This may affect your process, as it might be sensitive towards some specific impurities. If you are developing or designing a process with one of our compounds in mind and want to find the best solution, please contact us. Our staff of dedicated engineers is always available to answer any questions you may have.
We manufacture our materials from small to large scale in our facilities in Utica and Rome, NY – all processing takes place in the USA.

Indium preforms offer very precise volumes of solder, and are cut to fit some very interesting bond-line shapes. Some examples of preform applications are: bonding lids on sealed packages, thermal interfaces, and custom cut cryogenic sealing gaskets. We even know how to make a boring old rectangular…
Indium ribbon can be made to various widths and thicknesses. It may also be called "foil" if it is over 4 inches wide. It is easily cut to form shapes for prototyping or small-scale production. In fact, we use a large amount of indium ribbon to make preforms for our customers. Using a material…
Indium wire is very different than the solder wire you find in hardware stores. To me, it’s like comparing a sports car and a go-kart. Each perform differently, are made for a very different set of uses. Indium wire is used for many unique purposes, such as sputtering target bonding (soldering),…
