To ensure you achieve the optimum result you are aiming for when working on aluminium – whether cutting, grinding or polishing – the factors below need to be considered at all times:
When you cut, grind or polish aluminium, aluminium dust is always created. This dust is itself easily ignited and also reacts with moisture to form highly flammable gases. This creates the risk of a dangerous grinding dust explosion.
Breathing in aluminium dust can also cause aluminosis (also known as ‘aluminium lung’). The maximal admissible concentration (MAC value) is set at 5 mg/m³. If the dust then passes from the bloodstream into the brain, this also increases the risk of Alzheimer’s disease.
