      could it hurt somebody if they got in the way?

      I made this today with German dark Al powder and, of course, cupric oxide (both really fine powders). It does work but is difficult to light. But it’s really slow burning. Does anyone have any idea why? I thought it would be a cheap flash powder substitute but it is not even close to what is shown in the demonstration video I found. I’m mixing 8 parts cupric oxide to 3 Al powder. I don’t know where I am going wrong. Is the cupric oxide substandard? I know the German dark is fine.

    • links212 June 8, 2011 at 10:29 am

      Wow that really scared my because from my experience thermite has a high temperature slow burn.

      For use of thermite in cutting steel, see my video “Incendiary Experiments”.
      The mythbusters guys set off 1000 pounds of thermite to try to cut a car in half, and explosives experts at New Mexico Tech try to cut a column and a beam, and a Florida Engineer, Jonathan Cole, cuts columns, beams, bolt heads, and bolts.

      who know an easy way to make pure rust powder(fe2o3)?and what kind of aluminiumshould be used to make the best thermite??

    • crapbag1997 July 25, 2011 at 8:03 pm

      @1ukjunglednbraver make your own german dark al with ten percent carbon it is so easy to light and burns very fast for al give it a go should work i balled milled mine for 3 weeks

    • 1ukjunglednbraver July 25, 2011 at 8:26 pm

      @crapbag1997 thats not how they make german dark al i wont be as fine as the real deal and its darkness is only because of the high carbon content…real black alumium powder is made buy placeing al foil over paper and hammering it out in very thin to al leaf then its baked in a low oxygen environment changing the paper into carbon then its millid into a powder the carbon in the end product is very low its darkness is mostly from how fine it is..youe better of just milling it without carbon

    • crapbag1997 July 25, 2011 at 8:48 pm

      @1ukjunglednbraver it may not be german dark but it works very well

    • 1ukjunglednbraver July 26, 2011 at 8:35 am

      @crapbag1997 ohh yeh sure man i was going to say its cool you make your own stuff there just wasnt enuff room… i dont have a ball mill i have to buy my powders but i dont do a whole lot anymore i kinda grew out of it

    • csmaster65 August 6, 2011 at 11:18 pm

      Hello, very nice video. Have you tried with to make this with finer aluminium powder?
      Also, how was it ignited? Seems to be a visco burning?

    • imhanppl September 14, 2011 at 4:49 pm

      wow like bomb!

    • ihatebrazil3 October 10, 2011 at 4:13 am

      now make it with silver oxide.

    • 1ukjunglednbraver October 10, 2011 at 10:32 am

      ive made this with so many diffrent types of aluminium powder like atomized 30micron ball 14 micron flake and 2-4 micron german dark the best is the atomised 30micron ball but its isnt anything like this i can only assume my copper oxide is of poor quality or my ratios are wrong i want this type of stuff thus is what i want…sure i can make flash powder but this stuff is diffrent and seems more cool to me…i just want this effect

    • atourdeforce October 19, 2011 at 2:54 am

      @VestriDeusEstMortuus he clearly used copper oxide, but your wrong there are 2 types of readily available iron oxides iron2 oxide (which is black) and iron3 oxide (which is red) both are good for thermite and have the exact same properties.

    • WhosUrFingDaddy October 21, 2011 at 1:38 am

      What was the mix ratio?
