I must be honest, I always was scared to manage Whiste Mix and Flash Powder, but today I tried to make a little batch (10 grams) of Flash Powder.
Sincerely, this was not so "little", because 0,20 grams of this mix created a deflagration so powerful that I clearly perceived an air displacement and I clearly felt the collar of my shirt vibrate .
Also, the flash was so intense that partially blind me (and I was 3 meters far away!).
To make this flash I followed this tutorial:
but I used the formula: 58% KCLO4 and 42% German Dark and I used a very thin paper napkin to mix the individually screened chems for no more than 1 minute.
I know for sure that this mix is very sensitive, but just to try how sensitive it is, I putted a very small portion of this mix over and anvil and I hitted it with an heavy hammer: nothing happened.
So, I tried to crush and crawl that mix with the same hammer: nothing happened again!
I expected for sure a small deflagration. Anyone can tell me about this behaviour? The powder works at his best, but was not sensitive as expected.
