Aluminium powder is a fine granular powder which is odourless, light and flammable. It is generally available in four forms, namely, aluminium flake powder, atomised aluminium powder, aluminium paste and aluminium pigment powder. These forms may vary in size, shape and impurities.
Owing to the distinct properties of aluminium powder, it finds a broad range of applications in a number of industries such as metallurgy, chemicals, paints & pigments, explosives, construction and others. Some of the metallurgical applications of aluminium powder lie in the production of chromium metal and ferro-alloys, exothermic welding, etc. In the explosives industry, it is used as a blasting agent and rocket fuel. As aluminium powder is light in weight, its demand has been high in the construction sector where one of its uses include as an expanding agent in the lightweight concrete. Furthermore, in the paint industry, it is used in making reflective roof coatings, anti-corrosion paints and printing inks. Other applications are in the cosmetics and personal care products where it is used as a colouring agent and as a precursor for aluminium chlorohydrate and aluminium glycinate which are the constituents of deodorants and anti-perspirants.
