Description of key information

Based on the TG/DSC measurements and mineral composition the cadmium powder has no flammability, explosive or self-inflammability properties. However, in reaction with water, hydrogen gas is formed, and therefore in certain conditions cadmium has flammability and explosive properties (Outotec, 2010).
