Required Mass


Ball mill well to integrate. Rolls well, but may be cut or pumped quite easily as well. Precipitation methods may also be used to prepare it if a ball mill is not available, just screening the composition doesn't work very well.


Quite fast burning, dense tail but short life, better for large comets.

Works well as a propellant.

About 5% water works well for pumping. Pine charcoal is best for the most attractive sparks. Any aqueous binder may be used, Dextrin works quite well.
