flat-pack explosive (squib)
for the record, I'm a chemist and a physician. No particulate is especially good to inhale HOWEVER, hard rock miners used to get aluminum inhalation therapy to treat silicosis. Aluminum dust is a pulmonary irritant. While I've heard of asbestosis and silicosis, we didn't get much training on the dangers of "aluminosis". ?There is a lot that is unknown in the world of occupational health and welfare. That being said, there is no capris on between inhaling asbestos and inhaling aluminum powder. Where did you ever get such an idea?
Potential Acute Health Effects:Slightly hazardous in case of skin contact (irritant). Non-irritating to the eyes. Non-hazardous in case of ingestion.Another individual talking out his rectal cavity, must be a liberal.
You are fulla Ballonie! The MSDS clearly states that it only causes respiratory irritation. Nothing about about masks and agonizing death. You need to re-educate yourself. Read the MSDS.
I think it is a bad idea to dare a kid, (no matter how adept he thinks he is), to develop plastic explosives. Or any other form of high explosive that is potentially unstable in the development of it. Most of the pyrotechnic developments of these instructables are fairly stable, even during manufacturing, but the composition that you suggest requires a greater degree of control and care in handling and preparation. Not that I give a damn... hey kid, go blow yourself up!... I'm just saying, maybe a bad idea to dare him to do it is all
use Christmas tree lights for your ignitors... simply use wire cutters to cut the glass portion of the bulb, but leave the filament intact. The filament will pass a 12v current before breaking, allowing ignition of whatever powder you use.
