Indium Metal/ Sputtering Target

Indium Metal/ Sputtering Target

CAS #: 7440-74-6
Linear Formula: In
EC No.: 231-180-0

Product Details

From normal temperature to melting point, metal indium reacts slowly with oxygen in the air, forming a very thin oxide film (In2O3) on the surface. When the temperature is higher, it acts with a reactive non-metal. Bulk indium metal does not react with boiling water and alkaline solutions, but indium powdered can slowly react with water to form indium hydroxide. Indium reacts slowly with cold dilute acid, and is easily soluble in concentrated hot inorganic acid and acetic acid and oxalic acid. Indium can form alloys with many metals (especially iron, and iron-doped indium is significantly oxidized).

Indium ingots are mainly used in the production of ITO targets (for the production of liquid crystal displays and flat screens) due to their high optical permeability and electrical conductivity. This use is the main consumption area of indium ingots, accounting for 70% of global indium consumption. The next few consumer sectors are: electronic semiconductors, accounting for 12% of global consumption; solder and alloys accounting for 12%; research industry accounting for 6%. In addition, because of its softer nature, it is also used for pressure cracking in certain industries that require metal filling. Such as: vacuum gap filling material at higher temperatures.
