Indium Compounds & Chemicals

AIM is a supplier of Indium compounds and chemicals used in a wide array of industries. Indium compounds are used in the alkaline battery industry as an Hg replacement and an H inhibitor. Several Indium materials are used as transparent and conductive coatings for the display industry. Indium chemicals can be found as an additive within the plating industry for brightening or for surface hardening. These materials also can be used for thermal management applications.

Indium is a highly malleable, low melting element that remains workable to cryogenic temperatures.  Indium alloys offer a broad range of mechanical and melting characteristics.  Indium alloys with excellent fatigue resistance are a good choice for use in difficult joining applications, while the wide range of melting temperatures of various indium alloys meet many fusible alloy needs.

Indium is a chemically versatile element.  High purity indium is often utilized in the manufacture of III-V semiconductors, and indium-tin-oxide (ITO) is an important transparent conducting oxide in LCD and related technologies.  Inorganic salts are utilized in alkaline battery manufacturing and a number of indium plating chemicals are used in depositing indium as a lubricant to bearing surfaces.
