Abstract:

Flares and photoflash charges were prepared by fusing a low-melting- point eutectic oxidizer with metal powder. The eutectic replaced an organic binder which did not contribute to illumination capability. The flares and photoflash charges prepared with eutectic oxidizers nitrate and perchlorates of alkalis and alkali metals performed better than devices prepared with organic binders.
