Dear DCHAS members:

Addition to 40 micron aluminum powder:

One of PI in our campus is using 40 micron aluminum powder for the research purpose. After experiment/manipulations, aluminum dust is generated (fine layer of Al dust) in the enclosed room (the room is isolated area, precisely build for handling the manipulation, it is not common laboratory, also exhaust duct is equipped with appropriate filter and has explosion proof light fixture). I am only interested in cleaning procedure of the dust from the surfaces.
