Indium, is a metal element with the element symbol In, atomic number 49 located in the fifth cycle IIIA family of the periodic table. Its monopolism is a silvery-white and slightly light blue metal, very soft texture, engraved with nails. Strong plasticity, ductility, and can be pressed into pieces. Metal indium is mainly used to manufacture low melting alloy, bearing alloy, semiconductor, electric light source, etc. Indium is mainly used for producing ITO targets (for LCDs and flat screens) due to its strong optical permeability and conductivity. Heeger Materials supplies Indium (In) with high quality and at a competitive price.
High-purity and ultra-high purity Indium (In) materials are crucial components for the research, development, and production of advanced technologies which require optimum properties, performance, and quality.
Indium, because of its strong optical permeability and conductivity, is mainly used to produce ITO targets (for producing liquid crystal displays and flat screens), which is the main consumption field of indium ingots, accounting for 70% of the global indium consumption.
The next few consumer areas are electronic semiconductors, representing 12% of global consumption, 12% of soldiers and alloys, and 6% of research industries. Also, because its softer properties are also used in certain industries requiring fill metal for pressure seams. For example, the vacuum gap-filling material at a higher temperature.
Medically, indium colloids for liver, spleen, and myelography. Inum-DTPA. for brain and kidney scans Inum-Fe(OH)3 particles for lung scanning. In-Fe-ascorbic acid for placental scanning. Ferritin was delivered with indium.
Gallium and indium alloys synthesize a liquid metal to form a solid-soluble alloy that can become liquid at room temperature with a surface tension of 500 ms Newton per meter. This means that an almost perfect circular sphere remains unchanged when the alloy is placed on a flat desktop without external forces. When stimulated by a small amount of current, the sphere surface tension decreases and the metal stretches on the table. If the charge changes from negative to positive, the liquid metal becomes spherical. Changing the voltage size can also adjust the metal surface tension and metal block viscosity to become different structures. The study can also be used to help repair severed nerves in humans to avoid long-term disability. The researchers claim the breakthrough helped build better circuits, self-repair structures.
Indium is packed with dacron film, then covered with a sealed plastic film bag or in a polyethylene bottle.
