1.2.2 Ingot Contamination
The moulds are coated with a canola oil spray prior to casting, and the ingots may show some residue of this oil,
or its combustion products. They may also acquire some residue of any oil leakage in the system that found its
way to the moulds. This residue will be confined to small areas and will not affect the performance of the
product during the remelting process or any subsequent processing.

2 HEALTH, SAFETY AND ENVIRONMENT

2.1 Health and Safety Requirements


The aluminium ingot bundle is destined to be re-melted in a subsequent handling process. Addition of solid
materials to liquid aluminium is a potentially dangerous process.
Before charging any ingots to an aluminium -melting furnace, the ingots must be free from any contamination.
Oils, fertilizers, or strongly oxidising materials have the potential to cause a major explosion if they come in
contact with liquid aluminium during a melting process.
Before charging any ingots to a molten bath of aluminum, the ingots must be clean, as described above, and
furthermore the ingots must be completely dry. Wet ingots can cause a serious explosion or splashing of molten
metal.
The ingots must be dried, by preheating them at 200°C for a period of 2 hours. Testing should take place to
ensure that the preheating system is capable of fully heating the ingots to a core temperature of 120°C for a
period of not less than 1 hour.
During the course of transit, there is high risk that the ingots will become wet. Substandard transport or storage
conditions, outside Mozal control, may result in the product becoming dirty or contaminated with foreign
materials. For this reason it is essential that the user of the product treat all ingots with care and suspicion.
Additional information is contained in Appendix B – Material Safety Information

2.2 Environmental Requirements


Aluminium material is readily recyclable. Downstream products from aluminum processing are also readily
recyclable. The polyester strapping material is recyclable. Contact your local recycling agent, or your local
Signode agent for further information.
