Indium Corporation sells compounds based on the elements indium, germanium, gallium, and tin. These compounds are used in the manufacturing process of a number of high-tech devices, as these elements serve as crucial building blocks in semiconductor chips, electronic components, batteries, and other complex electronic products.
The compounds we make are inorganic compounds with challenging specifications. You can download the spec sheets from the area below - these are a great starting point to learn about our various materials. It is important to note, however, that your application determines what is the best specification. A compound like gallium oxide, for example, has five different crystal forms, only one of which might be suitable for your specific application. In addition, choosing the right starter material for our process will affect the amount of trace impurities. This may affect your process, as it might be sensitive towards some specific impurities. If you are developing or designing a process with one of our compounds in mind and want to find the best solution, please contact us. Our staff of dedicated engineers is always available to answer any questions you may have.
We manufacture our materials from small to large scale in our facilities in Utica and Rome, NY – all processing takes place in the USA.

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.
