IMPORTANT DATA
Physical State; Appearance
WHITE HYGROSCOPIC POWDER. 

Physical dangers
 

Chemical dangers
The solution in water is a strong base. It reacts violently with acid and is corrosive to aluminium, tin and zinc. Reacts with ammonium salts. This generates fire hazard. 

Occupational exposure limits
 

Routes of exposure
The substance can be absorbed into the body by inhalation of its aerosol and by ingestion. 

Inhalation risk
Evaporation at 20°C is negligible; a harmful concentration of airborne particles can, however, be reached quickly when dispersed. 

Effects of short-term exposure
The substance is corrosive to the eyes, skin and respiratory tract. Corrosive on ingestion. Medical observation is indicated. 

Effects of long-term or repeated exposure
 


PHYSICAL PROPERTIES ENVIRONMENTAL DATA
Melting point: 1650°C
Density: >1.5 g/cm³
Solubility in water: very good 
 

NOTES
Other UN numbers: 1819 (sodium aluminate, 80% solution): hazard class: 8, pack group: III.
Other CAS number: 11138-49-1.
