Abstract:

A collaborative study has been made of samples of pyrotechnic compositions delays, coloured smokes and a percussion primer by a number of laboratories. A variety of techniques have been used to characterize the ignitionignition transfer behaviour of the compositions. These include temperature of ignition, heat of reaction, burning rate, time to ignition, safety tests and DSCDTA analysis. This report presents the data collected by each laboratory during this investigation.
