Presented by: Dominykas Juknelevičius

An effective, but still not well-explored area of red flare pyrotechnic formulations was investigated using scientific methods. High magnesium content (40–60% w.t.) and the presence of conventional gas generating materials were the specific features of the investigated formulations. Such illuminant compositions possessed a low burning rate and high specific luminous intensity. Additives in the form of 2-cyanoguanidine, Melamine, Azodicarbonamide, Calcium resinate, Shellac, Strontium oxalate, Lactose, Dextrin, Phenolic resin, Lignin sulfonate, 5-aminotetrazole, Urea, Guanidinium nitrate (GN), Hexamine and Sulfur were evaluated as additives.
