Indium Corporation’s compounds are used in the battery industries to improve the operational efficiency in a variety of battery technologies. Alkaline batteries, some types of lithium ion batteries, and zinc air batteries are all examples where our compounds are used to:
- improve battery efficiency
- replace mercury
- act as an inhibitor to hydrogen outgassing
The indium compounds are used in a variety of ways inside the battery: Indium can be alloyed with other metal powders, plated onto connectors inside the battery, or added to the electrolyte.
Of specific interest to the battery industry are our following compounds:

When you are doing your year-end clean-up, check to see if you have any indium seals or scrap pieces of indium laying around. Send us your scrap indium and we'll pay you for it or you can use it as a credit on your next purchase of indium wire or preforms.
A new paper sparked my interest recently: Experimental Thermal Energy Assessment of a Liquid Metal Eutectic in a Microchannel Heat Exchanger Equipped With a (10Hz/50Hz) Resonator which talks about alternatives to liquid metal for high-temp heat exchange applications. Unfortunately, they left out my favorite alloy - eutectic gallium-indium or EGaInTM.
Dr. Ron received a question asking him to verify a calculation used to determine the karat value of various gold-based alloys. It's not as simple as it appears. Read this post to see how Dr. Ron answers the question.
