Gallium is a by-product of aluminum extracted during the processing of bauxite into alumina. It can also occasionally be found in Zn ore. We are a refiner and supplier of gallium materials.
Indium Corporation supplies gallium:
- In the form of shot and ingot
- In the form of sputtering targets, after being alloyed with other elements (Cu-Ga, Cu-In-Ga)
- In the form of compounds, such as Anhydrous Gallium Trichloride or Gallium Sesquioxide
Gallium and gallium alloys are desirable because of their low melting points and wetting properties. They are used for thin-film coatings and in thermal interface materials.
Gallium is also used in many semiconducting applications, such as photovoltaics, diodes, and integrated circuits. Rigorous quality standards and advanced analytical instrumentation, such as ICP and GDMS, assures consistent product quality from one lot to another.

I’ve always been a strong believer that a customer should not get a solder alloy that just “works” for their application, they should get the best alloy for their application. Of course, this is a compromise between all the factors that are important. Bond strength, unique properties,…
Dave Letterman, of late night talk show host fame, has made the Top Ten List a popular vehicle for comedy, but it is also often used to convey useful information in an easy to read format. I have read a lot of these lists in my time, and it is always fun to see one that talks about a topic near…
One of the most common misconceptions about CIG powder is that it is made up of individual copper particles, indium particles, and gallium particles. Indium Corporation's CIG powder is actually alloyed BEFORE it is made into powder, ensuring that each particle is the proper ratio of copper, indium,…
