Pyrotechnic chemicals are often used to make firework and pyrotechnic device. They help in preparing explosive. The firework needs wide range products like common oxidizers and fuels such as potassium perchlorate, potassium nitrate, sodium nitrate, strontium nitrate, aluminum and other metal powders.
Aluminum oxide, hydrated is an explosive chemical used in old-time end plug glue formulations. Spherical atomized aluminum is used in glitter and go-getter formulations.
Aluminum, flake, dark, indian blackhead is used to make blackhead. The aluminum, flake, firefly, produces long hang-time "firefly" effect when used in the formulation. Aluminum, flake, firefly, mixed "firefly" can be used to produce a long hang-time "firefly" or transformation effect when used in the formulation.
Ammonium chloride is used in making white smokes. Ammonium perchlorate the micron white powder oxidizer is used in strobe compositions. It produces rich colors in some star and fountain formulations, but slow burning; most commonly used composite rocket fuel oxidizer. Ammonium dichromate oxidizer is used in volcanoes, and often as a burn rate catalyst in propellant formulas based on ammonium nitrate.
