CH0113
* New

-325 mesh, 13 micron average, uncoated

-325 mesh "fine" spherical aluminum powder with an average particle size of 13 microns. It has a wide range of particle size range (bigger and smaller then 9 micron).

Its an excellent choice for glitter stars, comets and small fountains due to its large particle size range. This is our personal favorite aluminum for D1 glitter.

Also works very well as a fuel in thermite mixes also. For the price--especially in bulk--this aluminum is a very economical choice.

CH0101
* New

-400 mesh, 9 micron average, uncoated

This -400 mesh "super fine" aluminum dust has a average particle size of 9 micron so it almost floats in the air.

It works well for slow and fast burst powder, but really shines is as a fuel for silver\snowball stars, go-getters and ignition mixtures\primes.

This atomized aluminum is just the right kind of hot. It also works well in delicate glitter tails on stars.

CH5525

(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.
