In celebration of Indium Corporation’s 85th anniversary, the company will release monthly installments of the Elements of Indium Series—an educational program to raise awareness of the unique applications, abundance, and interesting properties of the 49th element.

Indium Corporation is the global leader for indium metal and associated technologies. Because of its unique properties with virtually limitless applications, indium metal is literally all around us.

Indium metal is a high-performing bonding material, especially when bonding non-metals such as quartz, glass, and glazed ceramics. Indium can also be cold welded to itself. It easily deforms under pressure and will fill voids between two surfaces, even at cryogenic temperatures.
