( solid chunks )
Ultra pure quantities of the
element Potassium (atomic number 19),
ideal for element collectors of those conducting experiments/producing
alloys with pure Potassium metal. Potassium is a very soft metal that can
easily be cut with a knife. It reacts violently with water, liberating
explosive Hydrogen gas and igniting it. It is a flammable metal and can
cause severe burns if it comes in contact with the skin. This material
should only be handled by those familiar with its properties. Potassium is shipped in a poly bottle under Mineral Oil within a metal
can. Potassium is a very lightweight metal (so lightweight, that it
actually floats on water). Several chunks included, total weight: 5 grams.
Use safety precautions
(wear eye protection and gloves) when working with Potassium metal.
Violently/explosively reacts with water and may ignite on contact with
air. Causes severe burns on contact with body tissue. See MSDS link below.
