Gallium metal products

Technical gallium metal fire and explosion-proof, however, has a negative impact on the human body. It boils only at a very high temperature, therefore it is suitable for working in appropriate conditions. It is a rather aggressive substance that reacts with almost all metals with increasing temperature.

Gallium metal industrial use

Gallium is used for cold soldering of ceramic and metal products. This method is recommended for connecting thin wires in devices where heating is undesirable.

Gallium does not occur as a free element in nature, but as gallium(III) compounds in trace amounts in zinc ores and in bauxite.[6] Elemental gallium is a liquid at temperatures greater than 29.76 °C (85.57 °F), above room temperature, but below the normal human body temperature of 37 °C (99 °F). Hence, the metal will melt in a person’s hands.

The melting point of gallium is used as a temperature reference point. Gallium alloys are used in thermometers as a non-toxic and environmentally friendly alternative to mercury, and can withstand higher temperatures than mercury.

Since its discovery in 1875, gallium has been used to make alloys with low melting points. It is also used in semiconductors as a dopant in semiconductor substrates.

Gallium is predominantly used in electronics. Gallium arsenide, the primary chemical compound of gallium in electronics, is used in microwave circuits, high-speed switching circuits, and infrared circuits. Semiconducting gallium nitride and indium gallium nitride produce blue and violet light-emitting diodes (LEDs) and diode lasers.
