Processes of nonisothermal oxidation, nitridation, and ageing of aluminum powders with different particle sizes (nano-sized powder, ASD-1 powder, and PAP-2 powder) are considered. Application of non-oxide coatings onto particles of aluminum nanopowders reduces their thermal stability. Owing to scale-shaped particles, the PAP-2 powder after long-time storage preserves high activity of oxidation and nitridation, which is commensurable with that of the aluminum nanopowder. The activity of the coarse ASD-1 powder consisting of spherical particles in terms of oxidation and nitridation is low and only slightly changes during ageing.
