Selectively Plating Indium

  • Are you plating indium metal? If so, here’s a tidbit of information you might find useful [From a customer inquiry on the Indium Corporation website]:

    Question: “Can the indium be deposited in specific areas of the target piece, i.e. a target with several metallic regions, where we would like to isolate just one? Or can it be easily masked?”

    Answer: “Areas of metallizations not requiring plating can easily be masked off either by the use of plater’s tape, or, more commonly, with a screenable resist, either thermal cure or UV cure.”
