Does anybody have a good pyrogen formula for igniters, beside Mg, BP and
nitro lacquer ? I understand one is out with potassium chlorate and ???

Thanks,

Jeff

Save your self the trouble & buy a kit with it already made. If you
have any books on EX SAFETY and motor making, you will find a formula
there. You might want to try this question on the chemroc ot solids
list.

Good luck.

Potassium Perchlorate is nasty stuff. If ya make your motors, then ya kinda
know what is needed to ignite 'em.

What are you trying to ignite?

I use Spitfire "Thermax" pyrogen. Easy to make, absolute positive
ignition so far (100% reliable for me thus far)

here is link to a reference from Nakka's website
