Eric, no, no and no thanks for me!  :D  The star is 100% Pirotex's composition! Our club just use it, because this is amazing, bright & very impressive color! We use our club's hot prime, PIP50. (KP 50, C 15, MgAl20, redgum 10, dex 5)

I want to make this comp (it looks amazing btw), but I have a few questions before I make it so I don't screw it up.

 

Do I have to ballmill the comp without metals?? and If how much time?

 

Could I cut the comp or can it only be pressed?

I tried to make these once and they ended up as puddles.  The NaNO3 sucked so much moisture from the air just overnight they completely liquefied.  I am guessing they should have gone in the dry box immediately.

I never had any problem with NAN03. I bet fence post will light them.

There are very few problems that cant be solved with explosives.
                             Explosives are a bang up job.

That must be VERY dirty NaNO3 you got there mate!


The only difference between a fireworker and a painter -- is the size of the canvas

Sodium nitrate is more hygroscopic than most of it's contaminants.  It absorbs water out of the air above 66% humidity at 70F, 40% RH at 85F.  Maybe it's just cold where you are. 


Just so you guys quit asking, here is the link to the old forum. http://www.xsorbit2....forum/index.cgi

The sky is my canvas, and I have 2,113 pounds of powdered paint in the workshop.
