HAZARD ALERT: Zinc metal dust could be flammable; dust may be present at the bottom of your bottle of this form of zinc.
SPECIAL HAZARD ALERT: Granular zinc is often used in a classic lab experiment to turn copper pennies into "silver" and then "gold." See the Gold Rush Chemical Demonstration Kit, Catalog No. AP8895. Do not use sodium hydroxide in this reaction—the leftover basic zinc residue is a fire hazard. Call or write us to obtain a complimentary copy of a revised procedure for this demonstration using granular zinc and zinc chloride. Request ChemFax Publication No. 10991.
