Abstract:

A brief description of an apparatus for testing the electrostatic discharge ignition threshold for sensitive materials is presented. This apparatus was used to demonstrate how fluorocarbons could alter the propensity of a nanothermite to ignite. In addition to these findings, the effect of the fluorocarbon on the pressure output of the material is reported.
