The aluminum pulp is a packed pigment or mineral powder. Aluminum pigments are used to create the aesthetics of metals found in various types of paints, coatings, and inks.
The length, width, and thickness of the atomic particles are almost the same sequence, and the dimensions of the length cannot exceed two or three times the dimensions of the thickness. The length or width of the shrapnel particles can be several hundreds of their thickness.
- Aluminum paste: Aluminum paste is a homogeneously bonded silver pigment In a solvent.
Various solvents can be used, including high and low flash point types. Detailed information on fire and/or explosion hazards related to specific paste formulations may be obtained from the Material Safety Data Sheet provided with delivery and in consultation with the paste supplier.
Storage area: In this booklet, the storage area is understood as the area where powder and paste are stored in a closed container. Requests for additional information about warehousing must be submitted to the supplier.
- Aluminum Powder Paste & Storage:
1. The storage should be in a non-combustible or combustible building.
2. Aluminum powder and paste should be stored in the fixed shipping container and it should be kept tightly stored.
3. The aluminum powder should not be stored in places that have contained flammable liquids or other fuels. With the utilization of material due to differences in fire fighting strategies.
4. the aluminum should be stored in an airtight container in a dry room at a temperature below the flashpoint of the solvent.
5. Arrange the container properly with enough aisle space. Keep the pile height to a minimum.
6. Aluminum powder and paste should not be stored in the same area with unsuitable materials such as rust. With suppliers of powders or pastes.
7. The safety aspects of bulk storage should be discussed.
- Safety principles:
Chemically, aluminum has a very strong bond with oxygen. This results in a thin layer of aluminum oxide that is produced almost instantly on the surface of aluminum when it is exposed to the atmosphere. When the aluminum powder particles are heated to
A certain temperature is known as the “ignition temperature“, the mass of a particle is very small, so the entire article can be oxidized almost instantly. Therefore, these piles of particles will “burn”. Since segmented particles have a much larger surface area per unit mass than atomic particles or particles, they will ignite more easily and burn faster than other types of powders. In general, aluminum dust with a particle size of 40 mesh (420 μm) or less presents a fire and explosion hazard.
