Great question. Answers are:
- This grade of thermite ignites at temperatures higher than jet fuel/office fires can produce. The particular ignition temperature of this type of
can be found in the paper (if you had actually read it, you would know this).
- The remainder of the quote can be summed up by stating the iron
oxide contains the oxidizer to supply oxygen to the mixture. This
is why thermite is used in under water welding applications, etc.
Too bad your GL friends with big Chemistry backgrounds didn't tell you
this. I am ... shoc...ked...
i have personal experience of the use of " thermate " tm the commercial welding product - and its very VERY sensetive to ` sloppy handling /
storage degredation `
Must be magic thermite. Read above.
Would you like to tackle Jones with your claims? I can arrange that
and pay you $50.00 for your troubles.
