Indium is a very rare technology metal. In 2016 worldwide production was just 655 tons, (compared to almost 3100 tons of gold) with a price of about 35000 Euro per kg (Nov 18). Indium has a very low melting point of 156.6 °C and is very soft and stable if exposed to air since Indium forms an oxide layer. Indium is used for many important technologies such as touch-screens, LCD monitors, organic LEDs (OLED) and CCD circuit paths. It is also indispensable for solar cells and photodiodes. Due to the low worldwide reserves of about 15000 tons (2015) it is one of the elements with the highest degree of criticality regarding its future supply.
The ingot has a weight of approx. 1 kg, but due to the production method there is a variance of about +/- 4% in weight, so your ingot can be a little bit lighter or heavier than 1 kg. Shipping costs are 6.99 Euro within Germany, 16.49 Euro with the EU and Switzerland, and 24.99 Euro worldwide. For multiple purchases we combine shipping.
