indium_phil-zarrow-and-carol-gowansIndium Corporation’s newest informational video provides an overview of the versatility of indium when alloyed with other metals.


This brief video, which can be found at, features Indium Corporation’s Indium and Bismuth Product Manager Carol Gowans as she explains how vast temperature ranges enable indium and indium alloys to be used for many diverse applications.


“Indium operates very well in a wide variety of temperature ranges,” Gowans explains. “It’s a very fun and exciting material, and I’m still amazed at how it serves new technologies due to its capabilities, including the ability to work in harsh environments, superior wetting performance, and gold leaching resistance. Indium is also really good with regard to thermal fatigue and has fantastic thermal conductivity properties.”
