Due to the needless use of fine magnesium, this flash powder is extreemely sensitive, even in comparison to other sensitive pyrotechnic compositions. Additionally, since perfectly suitable alternatives exist using only Aluminium, which have the suitable power for almost all, if not all possible legitimate pyrotechnic uses, this composition is one that you have no reason ever to make.
We strongly reccomend that you take our advise and stick to Aluminium based flash, or avoid flash altogether.
