DW=Dangerous When Wet; SC=Spontaneously Combustible;
OX=Oxidizer; FS=Flammable Solid; FL=Flammable Liquid; PM=Poisonous Material;
CM=Corrosive Material; AG=Aerosol Gas; ORM=ORM-D (cannot be shipped with other hazmat items, but is not hazardous itself)

For our safety as well as yours, we ship everything according to regulations. The DOT has no sense of humor!

Color Coding:
Green - means that particular item is not considered hazardous. However, items that are listed as ORM-D CANNOT be shipped to other countries (no international shipping). E-mail us if you have a question on a partcular item. ORM-D's are not considered hazardous by ground service.
Orange - means the item is normally hazardous, but we can ship it without a hazmat fee (in 1LB quanities, up to 10LBs, at 1LB price)
Red - means that the item must be shipped hazardously, regardless of qty ordered.
Blue - require a DOT-E-8249 Exemption box and hazardous fees.

If you are placing an order with us online, you must be on file with us, regardless of what your first order is. This means that we have to have a signed in ink order form and a copy of your driver's license on file. If you do not have these things on file with us, it will just delay your order. You only have to do it once and then you can order whenever you would like. Go to our order form page to print out the order form there. Then you can use that to fill out and send in.

For the MSDS information buttons, please realize these may or may not be the same ones that come with your order. We have them included here for your convenience and they are pulled from the internet, not necessarily from the manufacturer that we get the material from.

       Ready To Use Ignition Granules

Boron/Potassium Nitrate Ignition Granules, 10-60 mesh [BKNO3] - Stock # C124BKNO3 - FS

Boron, used extensively in thermic ignition compositions because of its extremely high heat of combustion, is combined with potassium nitrate (75%) and Ethyl Cellulose (1%) granulated into a flowable ignition mixture with a heat of reaction much higher than most any other ignition prime. It is used in many military devices, automotive gas air bag cartridges and other industrial use. This commercially produced igniter composition is 24% Boron for reliable ignition of most any pyrotechnic mixture. With boron prices being what they are, you cannot make it yourself at a lower cost than this, nor will you find it anywhere else at any price! Easy to use, simply press the granules into place or they can be mixed with nitrocellulose lacquer and applied. One pound goes a long way! Weight wise, there is 7000 grains in a pound. It takes as little as 5 grains per device for ignition. That means you will be able to reliably prime up to 1400 devices per pound of BKNO3! Reliable ignition for less than 2¢ each!

While supply lasts. . . . .Sold in full 10 lb cases only. . . . .Shipped by motor freight
