Indium Corporation and Metallic Resources, Inc. have entered into an agreement allowing Indium to globally market and manufacture Metallic Resources' patent pending Cobalt995 (99Sn 0.5Cu <0.05Co) Pb-free alloy. Cobalt995 is an alternative to SAC (Sn/Ag/Cu) alloys that not only costs less than the silver-containing SAC alloys, but also exhibits brighter, shinier, and smoother solder joints in standard wave soldering applications. Metallic Resources is successfully marketing Cobalt995 for Wave, HASL, and SMT applications for over a year and has a significant installed customer base. Indium Corporation will use its expertise to develop complimentary and compatible Cored Wire and Solder Paste products as well as market its Bar Solder for wave applications. Indium Corporation's technological development, technical support, and global capability, combined with Metallic Resources' advanced alloy and electrolytic capabilities, make this high performance alloy ideal for solder customers worldwide. Metallic Resources Inc. is a leading global supplier of high performance, ultra-pure solders and materials for the electronics assembly and metal joining markets. Indium Corporation is a four-time Frost & Sullivan Award-winning supplier of electronics assembly and semiconductor packaging materials, including solder pastes, solder preforms, fluxes, Pb-Free solder alloys, underfill materials, die-attach materials, and more. The company is also the world's premiere supplier of commercial grade and high-purity indium. Factories are located in the USA, the United Kingdom, Singapore, and China.
