<==============================>
If you are placing an order with us online, you must be on file with us, regardless of what your first order is. This means that we have to have a signed in ink order form and a copy of your driver's license on file. If you do not have these things on file with us, it will just delay your order. You only have to do it once and then you can order whenever you would like. Go to our order form page to print out the order form there. Then you can use that to fill out and send in.
<==============================>

For the MSDS information buttons, please realize these may or may not be the same ones that come with your order. We have them included here for your convenience and they are pulled from the internet, not necessarily from the manufacturer that we get the material from.

 

Please Note: Aluminum that is HIGHLIGHTED (DW) on this page are not considered hazardous when shipped in 1lb inner containers. However, if you order 10lbs or more they must be shipped as a hazmat item. Call or email if you have questions on shipping or hazmat fees. Note: APS="Average particle size", AFA="As fine as". Barium Chlorate, Barium Nitrate and Barium Peroxide must be shipped in DOT E-8249 exemption packaging as a hazmat item no matter what quantity you order.

Aluminum Paste, lumpy bright flake with solvent smell [Al]. Stock # C104AP

Surplus bright aluminum from the paint industry. Although it is not paint, it has been coated with a solvent so it can be mixed into the vat to make paint, but the solvent has since mostly evaporated off leaving lumpy aluminum with a solvent smell. Left out to dry further, it can be crushed back into powder or added as is in the mixing process. We have experimented with success for use in rocket propellants, flares, HC smoke, ignition mixtures, etc.. It can also be used to make paint and lacquer! We mixed it with NC lacquer for various metal flake colors........beautiful. Simply add one ounce or more per quart of lacquer for that visual metallic sheen. Makes great modelers paint or airplane fuselage/wing dope.

Aluminum Roof Coating/Sealant, for sealing metal roofs and vents. Stock # C104ARC

This is the silver roof sealant used to seal metal roofs on mobile homes and out buildings or barns, sealing around air conditioning units and vents, etc.. It is usually rolled on like a thick paint or mopped on. The silver finish reflects the heat thus keeping the house or building cooler. This is surplus material currently being sold to roofing companies in bulk 55 gal drums at huge savings. We got our hands on some to pass the savings onto those of you out there that like to save money and do it themselves. We used it on our main building here. Drum mixing is accomplished by using a long shaft "mud" mixer blade (we bought ours from Harbor Freight Tools and welded a longer shaft on it). Comparable product at Home Depot is over $76.00/4.75 gallons. If you are a roofer, buy it in bulk while it lasts! 5 gallon buckets can be shipped by UPS (no hazmat) and 55 gallon drums must be shipped by motor freight. Call for a shipping quote.
