First Fire Mix, The Thermite Ignitor
Will the putty stick to surfaces?
It would be, but most likely it's hydrated iron oxide (i.e a molecule of iron oxide that has water chemically bonded to it). To avoid the danger of steam explosion the water should be driven out of it by drying it in an oven or something.
How did you grind the aluminum, or can you use aluminum oxide like the kind used for polishing stone?
Very thorough explanation. I'm curious to see with what type of ignition sources you come up with.
