Indium Bonding for Conductivity
ACI Alloys Inc. offers indium and elastomer bonding. Indium bonding is often an ideal method of bonding because is an efficient way to pull heat away from the destination target. Indium is an extremely forgiving bond that is malleable, which allows it to expand without cracking. Although most materials are appropriate for indium bonding, indium does have a melting point slightly over 150 degrees that will cause the bond to fail with inefficient cooling.
Elastomer Bonding for High Temperature
Elastomer is a bonding method that is best used for customers who have melted indium bonds. Elastomer is a great selection for low-melting-point and temperature-sensitive materials. Elastomer bonding does have good strength at temperatures up to 250 degrees Celsius.
