Indium Cold Welding Video

  • A thought occurred to me the other day: I’ve never seen a video of someone just cold-welding two pieces of indium together. Sounds simple enough…

    So, there I was with 2 ingots of indium that needed to be re-cast for a trade show, a video camera from Solar Power International 2010, and an idea to make a video so you could see one of the unique properties of indium metal.

    Of course, it doesn’t make sense for people to just stick bars of indium together for no reason – but cold-welding does have some very practical uses.
