Buy Indium from Surepure Chemetals
Surepure Chemetals sells pure indium. We stock many sizes and can supply others with short lead times.
Properties of Indium
Indium is very soft, ductile (can be stretched), and malleable (can be compressed). It has a relatively low melting point (~313.9°F).
It is soft and workable even at low temperatures.
Uses of Indium
About half of the world's indium is used to produce LCD (liquid-crystal display) televisions and computer monitors.
Pure indium is a component of indium tin oxide (ITO), which is used in LCD televisions, solar panels, and touch screens.
Indium is also used for semiconductors and electronics in solders.
Indium wire can be used to create cryogenic seals in vacuum-tight conditions.
Indium is sometimes alloyed with other elements (such as gold and platinum) to make coatings that can help reduce oxidation and wear.
Indium ASTM Specifications
Surepure Chemetals sells pure indium covered by the ASTM B1002 specification.
We can also provide indium-tin alloy covered by the ASTM B774 specification.

Surepure Chemetals sells indium in different forms:
Standard diameters range from 0.020" to 0.394".
We use the term "wire" for smaller diameters that are supplied on a spool or as a coil.
We use the term "rod" when the diameter is large enough that it can be supplied as a straight length.
Standard thicknesses range from 0.002" to 0.010".
We use the terms "foil" and "sheet" for shorter cut pieces (usually up to 12" long) that are usually supplied flat. "Foil" is very thin; "Sheet" is a little thicker and is thus a little stronger and bends less.
We use the terms "strip" and "ribbon" for longer pieces that are usually supplied on a spool or a cylindrical core. "Ribbon" is somewhat narrow (usually less than an inch wide); "Strip" is wider.
