    The material safety data sheet says that Thermal Grizley Konductonaut is an alloy of Gallium, Indium, and Tin. No report on the % of each since that’s not required for an MSDS. But that’s the metals that are in it.

    If that liquid metal stuff has gallium in it, it will start to destroy aluminium if it contaminates it by creating an alloy amalgam similar to what mercury does does to aluminium.
