Calcium, one of the reactive alkali metals, is a gummy white metal that forms a black oxide within seconds of being exposed to air. ACI Alloys can supply pure calcium sputter targets and evaporation pieces packed in argon, although the material is best packed in oil to prevent oxidation.

Calcium alloys are more stable in air. See calcium in our "materials made" page for an idea of our capabilities--also try searching alphabetically on each of the element symbols in the material you are looking for.

The MSDS for calcium can be found at
