its iron oxide and aluminium
i think its 7:3 by volume

If you don't know, iron oxide is rust and the aluminium needs to be a powder or small granules. Just FYI. (Below fwjs28 says where you can get Al powder easy.)
Oh i know, ive just finished a-level chemistry and have seen the thermite reaction peformed a couple times in the lab.
