Indium Corporation's Indium and Indium Alloy Reclaim and Recycle Program Enriches Return on Investment

June 16, 2016

Indium Corporation's indium metal and indium alloy reclaim and recycle program earns customers an enhanced return on used materials.

Indium is used extensively in thermal management, low-temperature soldering, and sealing applications. In many instances, the indium is not fully consumed and can be reclaimed from the process. This indium-containing material can be returned to Indium Corporation for recycling or financial credit.

“Not only is recycling an important process, and a responsible corporate policy, it also provides the indium and indium alloy consumer a financial benefit,” said Indium and Bismuth Product Manager Carol Gowans. “When a consumer diverts used indium from the waste stream back to Indium Corporation, they are turning scrap into a financial gain.”

Indium Corporation also offers reclaim and recycle programs for germanium, indium tin oxide (ITO), indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO), and bar solder.
