Press release date: October 11, 2012

Indium Corporation's Thin Film & Solar Products Director, Bill Jackson, will present at the Association of International Metallizers, Coaters and Laminators (AIMCAL) Web Coating and Handling Conference on October 23 in Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.

Jackson's presentation, The Future Supply of Indium and ITO, focuses on the availability of indium metal, as well as indium-tin oxide (ITO) and emerging alternatives.

Most of the world's indium metal is used, in the form of ITO, to produce flat-panel liquid-crystal displays (FPDs). Indium metal is primarily a byproduct of zinc mining, with known reserves equivalent to more than 50+ years, at today's usage rates. In addition, the FPD market has a mature reclaim stream which enhances the health of the indium market. The industry is investing in increasingly efficient extraction and refining processes to bring more indium to market. Extraction and refining have been, and can be further, expanded to meet the demand caused by emerging technologies and applications. Jackson's talk will focus on indium's sourcing from regions throughout the world, the current supply chain, current demand and reserves, forecasted ITO demand, material properties, and comparisons to alternative technologies. AIMCAL is a global nonprofit trade association representing converters of metallized, laminated, and coated flexible substrates and their suppliers. The conference brings together the converting community to advance the technologies of web processing, handling, and finishing. Jackson is a 35-year veteran in the metals and materials industry and has worked for Indium Corporation for over 30 years, after spending five years in the aerospace industry. Prior to becoming director of Indium Corporation's thin film & solar products line, he was director of corporate quality, director of operations, and managing director for Indium's Singapore and UK facilities. Jackson is a member of the Society of Vacuum Coaters, American Management Association, and the American Marketing Society, as well as a past member of the American Society for Metals and the Society of Manufacturing Engineers. Indium Corporation is a premier materials supplier to the global electronics, semiconductor, solar, thin-film, and thermal management markets.
