What are examples of materials that can be a combustible dust hazard?

Some of these materials are not "normally" combustible, but they can burn or explode if the particles are the right size and in the right concentration. Just about any carbohydrate dust, including sugar, pudding mix and fine sawdust will explode once ignited.

Many materials you may not realize can become combustible under specific situations.
Some examples include:
• egg whites • powdered milk • sugar • flour
• grain • cornstarch • potato • rice • bronze
• aluminum • magnesium • zinc • sulfur
• coal • pharmaceuticals • pesticides • wood • rubber • textiles • plastics, and much more.

There are many, many more types of materials that may become a combustible dust. OSHA has created a poster which lists more examples. I have included the OSHA poster as a download for your reference.
