By using aluminum powders, aluminum wheels and other items to polish metal surfaces, aluminum manufacturers are hoping to boost sales of their products.
But the process is hazardous and can also be dangerous, and the aluminum additive aluminum oxide can be harmful if inhaled or absorbed through the skin.
Aluminum powders can also damage metals like copper and zinc, and they are usually not safe for people with sensitive skin.
To clean aluminum powder, it is necessary to wash the powder with alcohol, which can be corrosive.
Alcohol is often used to wash copper, zinc and other metals, but it is also a possible cause of the metal’s rusting, so be careful.
Alumina is used as a solvent in the process of making aluminum powder.
Aluminium powder is also known as aluminum oxide.
Alcidol, the ingredient in aluminum powder, is also used in toothpaste and a number of other products.
Alibaba, which sells the aluminum powdering services on its platform, has also made an effort to ensure the safety of its products by including a precautionary label that warns against aluminum oxide in aluminum products.
