other alloying elements may be present in minute quantities. No permissable exposure limits (PEL) or treshold limit
values (TLV) exist for aluminum alloys.
Values shown are applicable to component elements.
Physical state: Solid Odour: N/a Evaporation Rate: N/a Boiling point: N/a Vapour pressure: N/a
Vapour density: N/a Freezing point: N/a Coefficient wtr/oil distribution: N/a Ph: N/a
Odour threshold: N/a Boiling point: N/a Appearance: slvr gry Specific Gravity:H20=1(approx. 2.5-2.9)
Means of extiction: Dry Powder or Sand *NOTE: do not use water or Halogen on molten Aluminum Flash
Not applicable Chemical Stability: yes Incompatibility to other substances: yes
Reactivity & under what condition: Sodium Hydroxide& Halogen ACIDS in contact with Aluminum may
generate explosive Hydrogen Mixtures. Hazardous Decomposition Products: extreme heat may produce
toxic or irritating airborne particulate, including Alloy Oxide
Route of entry:Prolonged skin contact with coated products may cause skin irritation in sensitive individuals
Inhalation of alloy particulate or elemental oxide fumes generated during welding, burning, grinding
or machining may pose acute or chronic effects.
Acute exposure: Inhalation of overexposure may cause metal fume fever characterised by fever and
chills (flu like symptoms) appears to 6 hours after exposure with no know long term effects.
Chronic exposure: Chronic inhalation of alloy fume may cause a benign pneumonconconiosis (siderosis)
