The Lead Plant, Ust-Kamenogorsk Metallurgical Complex, yields some indium generated in the processing of Pb and Cu dust.
Lead Plant, Ust-Kamenogorsk Metallurgical Complex
Extraction and purification of indium re-extract, production of briquettes, melting and refining of indium briquettes when Cu and Pb Plant dusts are treated.
Production output per year:
- Indium is used to seal the rockets and fabricate viewport seals. Indium increases corrosion resistance.
- liquid crystal displays
- Indium is luminescent and makes the screen glow
- Not only indium makes things glow, but also enhances their resistance to weather impact and is used to manufacture headlights for these reasons.
