Which is the most flammable, non-regulated and non-hazardous material you know? Answered
I'm trying to ignite a smoke cartridge from a 6V flashlight bulb tungsten filament. When connected to the battery, the filament vaporizes with a small flash, however not sufficient to ignite the smoke mix. The smoke mix requires some energy to ignite (equivalent, 5 seconds with a lighter).
I am now looking for a ignition aid material to put in between the filament and the smoke mix. It can be natual or synthetical, the only requirements are that it 1. ignites from a small spark 2. Is not classed as hazardous material/dangerous goods.
What I have already tried:
Char cloth - works OK, but the filament has to be put right at the edge of the cloth as it doesn't ignite very well from the top.
Dryer lint - Doesn't work
Cotton pad with vaseline - Doesn't work
Toilet paper - Doesn't work
Any other ideas?
