Hydronitracidium perchlorate HNP is a potential candidate as an igniter material for JP-5 filled firebombs. Hypergolicity tests of HNP with JP- 5 were attempted using pool-drop and spray-ignition methods. Neither was found to be suitable as an indicator of the reaction found in full-scale firebomb testing. Compatibility studies were conducted of HNP with 14 materials from which firebomb igniters could be made. Teflon TFE and Kel-F were nonreactive. All metals tested were attacked to varying degrees.
