This type of Mg has great power shift , just mixed with Barium Nitrate and Titanium. Burning it is very elastic throwing grains of Ti at a great distance.Ideal for air burst, colorful shots, flash floor e openings crossets, colored flash powder etc.
The stick is nothing more than the compressed Mg, which has made handling and transportation safe, only when you shave the stick is that we have loose powder, ready for use. The stick is very difficult to ignite.
Here then I show their rapid ignition only with barium nitrate, and then I demonstrate the safety of the rods in contact with the fire.
