USES:   Calcium metal is used in the manufacture of steel as a flux or purifier(scavenger), in the removal of bismuth from lead and in the alloying of lead for battery grid (lead acid batteries).
 
HANDLING:   The appearance of calcium metal is silver to silver white. It is highly reactive and unstable in moist air. In air, calcium forms a “hydration” coating. Calcium can be stored in dry air (30% or less relative humidity) - this is not recommended! Calcium reacts with water liberating hydrogen which may be auto-ignitable. Finely divided calcium will auto-ignite in air. Calcium metal must be kept dry and stored in sealed metal containers under an atmosphere of argon! Storage in well ventilated area is essential.
