Winokur 20 (Glitter)Edit

From PyroGuideEdit

Winokur 20 is a glitter composition that produces bright gold flashes. It has an excellent delay, is fairly slow burning, and meal priming is highly recommended to engulf the stars properly.

[edit] CompositionEdit

Potassium nitrate 48
Sulphur 17
Magnalium (-200 mesh, granular) 12
Charcoal (airfloat) 10
Sodium bicarbonate 5
Iron oxide (red) 4
Dextrin 4

Method If necessary, individually grind all chemicals as fine as possible, using a coffee grinder or mortar and pestle. Excluding the magnalium, ball mill all the chemicals together for about 30 minutes.

Screen the magnalium into the mix using the screen method until the mixture is homogeneous. Now you need to moisten the mix so it can be pumped into stars. Do this by mixing up a solution of about 75% water and 25%isopropyl alcohol (do not add any more than 25% alcohol). The alcohol makes the water wetter by breaking down the surface tension of the composition and allows the water to be absorbed easier. The drying time of a composition is also reduced as alcohol evaporates faster than water.

Add some of the solution to the composition and mix well. Keep adding until it is damp enough to clump together if you squeezed an amount in your hand. Don't make the mixture too wet or it will make pumping the composition impossible. If this happens, just add more dry mix.

Summary It burns well with a brilliant effect of long delayed gold flashes. It is quite drossy, not really suitable for gerbs or rockets, it will slag their nozzles very rapidly.
