Sodium Benzoate, Prill Form
[NaC7H5O2] - Prill Form
Sodium benzoate is used as a fuel in making whistle composition in rockets and as a booster for shell burst charges. Sodium Benzoate comes in the highest quality, but comes in prill form and will need to be blade-milled in a coffee grinder or bullet blender before use.
Prilled benzoate is sometimes preferred by fireworks makers because it remains free flowing in storage, and is priced far less then it's air-milled counterpart. It's the most economical option for pyros who don't mind a quick, easy pre-processing step before use.
