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.

When the wave soldering machine was developed, the early flux application method was the same as the solder application method - a wave. While this technique is not common these days, it still finds some use. So, let's discuss it. First, how it works: The mechanism consists of a container,…
Previously we discussed the importance of dimensions and tolerances in the specification of solder preforms, however these data points are best expressed in the form of an engineering drawing. You may be thinking, “Why would I make a drawing for a rectangle?”. Even if you are specifying a…
A wave solder machine's foam fluxer is a device in which compressed air is fed through a porous tube (commonly referred to as a "stone" because this part used to be made out of unglazed porcelain) that is submerged in foaming flux. The stone is covered with a chimney which helps produce…
