Gallium

Gallium

Gallium is a by-product of aluminum extracted during the processing of bauxite into alumina. It can also occasionally be found in Zn ore. We are a refiner and supplier of gallium materials.

Features & Benefits

Indium Corporation supplies gallium:
  • In the form of shot and ingot
  • In the form of sputtering targets, after being alloyed with other elements (Cu-Ga, Cu-In-Ga)
  • In the form of compounds, such as Anhydrous Gallium Trichloride or Gallium Sesquioxide

Gallium and gallium alloys are desirable because of their low melting points and wetting properties. They are used for thin-film coatings and in thermal interface materials.

Gallium is also used in many semiconducting applications, such as photovoltaics, diodes, and integrated circuits. Rigorous quality standards and advanced analytical instrumentation, such as ICP and GDMS, assures consistent product quality from one lot to another.
