YES, THAT'S RIGHT .......50% OFF !!!

To clarify, for each pound you order at regular price, you will recieve one free. No, you cannot order one pound at 50% off, and you must pay the shipping for the weight shipped, i.e., if you order one pound, you pay the shipping for two pounds plus regular packaging fees and the usual 3% order processing fee. Materials that require an ATFE are so noted. If we have no materials listed here, we are sold out. Check back often, we will add new materials as we get them.

Aluminum Paste, lumpy bright flake with solvent smell [Al]. Stock # C104AP

Surplus bright aluminum from the paint industry. Although it is not paint, it has been coated with a solvent so it can be mixed into the vat to make paint, but the solvent has since mostly evaporated off leaving lumpy aluminum with a solvent smell. Left out to dry further, it can be crushed back into powder or added as is in the mixing process. We have experimented with success for use in rocket propellants, flares, HC smoke, ignition mixtures, etc.. It can also be used to make paint and lacquer! We mixed it with NC lacquer for various metal flake colors........beautiful. Simply add one ounce or more per quart of lacquer for that visual metallic sheen. Makes great modelers paint or airplane fuselage/wing dope. No ATFE required to purchase, no quantity restrictions.

    Aluminum Roof Coating/Sealant, for sealing metal roofs and vents. Stock # C104ARC

This is the silver roof sealant used to seal metal roofs on mobile homes and out buildings or barns, sealing around air conditioning units and vents, etc.. It is usually rolled on like a thick paint or mopped on. The silver finish reflects the heat thus keeping the house or building cooler. This is surplus material currently being sold to roofing companies in bulk 55 gal drums at huge savings. We got our hands on some to pass the savings onto those of you out there that like to save money and do it themselves. We used it on our main building here. Drum mixing is accomplished by using a long shaft "mud" mixer blade (we bought ours from Harbor Freight Tools and welded a longer shaft on it). Comparable product at Home Depot is over $76.00/4.75 gallons. If you are a roofer, buy it in bulk while it lasts! 5 gallon buckets can be shipped by UPS (no hazmat) and 55 gallon drums must be shipped by motor freight. Call for a shipping quote.

Titanium Alloy, Fine Swarf, approx 285µ, 50-60 mesh [Ti/Al/Cr/V/] Stock # C196TIS - FS

This is a hardened alloy of Titanium, Aluminum, Cromium and Vanadium manufactured by Timet. Same excellent white hot branching sparks as the more expensive milled flake or the insanely expensive sponge. Works well in salutes, fountains, gerbs, comets, whistles, rocket propellants, etc.. In addition, because of the particle shape of this fine swarf, it burns with a distinctive crackle and it can be easily ball milled to a finer mesh size. That is usually not possible with the thicker hammer milled product. In a microscope, you can see that this swarf is fine machine produced curls. It is this shape that provides the distinctive burn crackle and allows it to be broken into finer particles for a variety of mesh sizes. This is excellent material for pyrotechnics. Shipped with a fine water soluble oil coating that can easily be removed by adding some water and dish detergent and shaking for a minute, drain, rinse and spread out to dry. Full drums are done the same way by rolling on the ground, drain and rinse. Simple! Can be shipped by mail without hazmat fees. No restrictions and No ATFE required to purchase any quantity.

 These prices are a real steal ! ! !

Polyester Resin F17-80 Polymer

Propellant and Pyrotechnic Binder.

Included free with each order, we will send information including simple procedures and formulations to make all of the above listed items - in several vivid flame colors! One pound of F17-80 will make over 7 lbs of pyrotechnic composition! You can apply the information to dozens of other similar applications as well. Step out of the dark ages and into the future of pyrotechnics using polymer based (composite) binder systems! Ignition Pellets; by weight - Polyester resin 14 parts, DER-331 Epoxy 3 parts, Versamid 140 1 part (optional but cures it faster), Potassium perchlorate 62 parts, Charcoal, air float 8 parts, Red iron oxide 3 parts, Aluminum 40-270 mesh 2 parts, Magnesium 10-60 mesh 7 parts, A pinch of Titanium may also be added for additional hot sparks. Mix thoroughly and press into a 3/8" to 1/2" thick sheet, score into squares and cure until tackless @ 150-180F. Break into pieces along the scoring. The rough surface helps make them easier to ignite or a small hole may be made using an ice pick and a length of safety fuse added. Dozens of applications! Keep some larger pieces in your car or camper for emergency campfires. Stores well - almost impervious to moisture! These would sell well at gun shows or package them for sale to sporting goods stores. Quart and gallon pricing in chemical section.
