Hazards and Protection.
Store in cool, dry area in a tightly sealed container.
Impervious (rubber) gloves and safety glasses.
NIOSH - approved dust respirator
Wear appropriate respiratory and protective equipment specified in section VIII-control measures. Isolate spill area and provide ventilation. Vacuum up spill using a high efficiency particulate absolute (HEPA) air filter and place in a closed container for proper disposal. Take care not to raise dust.
Stable at normal temperatures and pressures.

Aluminum compounds have many commercial uses and are commonly found in industry. Many of these materials are active chemically and thus exhibit dangerous toxic and reactive properties. Inhalation of fine aluminum oxide particles is associated with Shaver's disease. Most antimony compounds are poisons by ingestion, inhalation, and intraperitoneal routes. Locally antimony compounds irritate the skin and mucous membranes
Acute: May cause nausea, vomiting, diarrhea and cramps. Chronic: May be implicated in Alzheimer's disease.
Acute: Inhaltion of dust or powder may cause irritation to the respiratory system, nose throat and mouth. Chronic: Inhalation of finely divided powder may cause pulmonary fibrosis.
Antimony is a primary irritant.
Dust and powder may cause irritation.
Give 1-2 glasses of milk or water and induce vomiting; seek medical attention. Never induce vomiting or give anything by mouth to an unconscious person.
Remove victim to fresh air; keep warm and quiet; give oxygen if breathing is difficult and seek medical attention.
Remove contaminated clothing; brush material off skin; wash affected area with mild soap and water; seek medical attention.
Flush eyes with lukewarm water, lifting upper and lower eyelids, for at least 15 minutes. Seek medical attention.
