How To: Sodium Chlorate and Aluminium Flash Powder (Fast Burning)

video How To: Sodium Chlorate and Aluminium Flash Powder (Fast Burning)
In a previous video I had made a Slow Burning, almost Thermite like flash powder out of NaNO3 (Sodium Nitrate) and Aluminium Powder... (http://youtu.be/P9qAQ733VG4)

Today I step it up a notch and make this batch using some Homemade NaClO3 (Sodium Chlorate) in place of the NaNO3... The results are the difference between night and day...

The Ratio is a simple 1:1 NaClO3 to Aluminium Powder, Mixed carefully of course.

Be safe!

Anyways, enjoy...

Very interesting. Where do you get powder aluminum?

Hopefully this should help (http://www.instructables.com/id/Make-German-Dark-Aluminum-Powder/) and the Sodium Chlorate was made from bleach.

Thanks!
