ZCH0197

Mostly -20+60 mesh, splatters, needles, and spheroidal powder
Very coarse aluminum useful for large devices such as dripping comets and fountains.

Great for slowing down thermite reactions. Simply replace 10-50% of the fine thermite grade aluminum with coarse spheroidal to adjust the burn speed. The more you add the slower the reaction but also the harder it will be to ignite.

(potassium bichromate) [K2Cr2O7] Orange granular powder
Potassium dichromate, technical grade, 99.8% pure.

Potassium dichromate is used as a surface treatment to suppress the corrosion and reactivity of magnesium; infrequently as an oxidizer; and as a catalyst to aid in the decomposition of potassium perchlorate, often in primes. It does this by lowering the activation energy of the chemical reaction that takes place when the composition burns. That makes the star, comet, etc. ignite at a lower temperature. Potassium dichromate enables the oxidizer to part with its oxygen with a lower input of energy than would otherwise be needed. In other words, it allows the oxidizer to decompose at a lower temperature.
