Indium Metal and Indium Alloy Reclaim and Recycle Program Enriches Return on Investment


Reading time ( words)

Indium Corporation's indium metal and indium alloy reclaim and recycle program earns customers an enhanced return on used materials.

Indium is used extensively in thermal management, low-temperature soldering, and sealing applications. In many instances, the indium is not fully consumed and can be reclaimed from the process. This indium-containing material can be returned to Indium Corporation for recycling or financial credit.

“Not only is recycling an important process, and a responsible corporate policy, it also provides the indium and indium alloy consumer a financial benefit,” said Indium and Bismuth Product Manager Carol Gowans. “When a consumer diverts used indium from the waste stream back to Indium Corporation, they are turning scrap into a financial gain.”

Indium Corporation also offers reclaim and recycle programs for germanium, indium tin oxide (ITO), indium gallium zinc oxide (IGZO), and bar solder.
