FIREFOX CYCLONE ELECTRIC MATCH - MODEL ROCKET & SPECIAL EFFECTS IGNITER

NON-EXPLOSIVE - NON-HAZARDOUS SHIPPING - NON-TOXIC! Our new “Cyclone” match has features no other electric match has. Our special mineral/oxide element contains NO HAZARDOUS PYROTECHNIC OXIDIZERS that create rapid/explosive combustion rates, environmental and ingested toxicity, low heat sensitivity and special shipping regulations yet they will ignite reliably using a 12 volt automotive battery and combust creating a short burn in excess of 2000 DEGREES F! They are safer to use and cannot be accidentally ignited by normal static electricity or strong CB or radio interference. Safer to store - lacquer sealed conductive mineral elements are sealed in a poly barrier bag. Heat stabilized - they will not ignite even at temperatures of 3500F. Resistance is 1.0
to 3.0 ohms (1.9 ohms average). Legend: SB (small bulb), LB (large bulb).

CYCLONE™ RC ELECTRIC MATCH PRODUCTION SET - LOW VOLTAGE

Similar in construction to the famous Davey Fire match but designed to produce results unequaled anywhere, our Cyclone™ RC Electric match ignites flawlessly on as little as 1.5 volts - .5 amperes (single alkaline AA battery) and combusts for 1-2 seconds at over 2000 DEGREES F emitting lots of sparks and molten slag to ignite stubborn compositions or devices. Very impressive! The kit comes with everything needed including bridgewire chips to produce 50 igniters with 12” leads. Very easy, simply solder element “chip” to lead, mix pre-measured pyrogen and dip igniter followed by a final dip in lacquer sealant - all included. Excellent for remote control use! Average resistance is 1.3 ohms. Non explosive ignition!   All you need is solder, Ruby Fluid soldering flux and soldering iron.

HOMEMADE ELECTRIC MATCHES FOR JUST PENNIES EACH!!
Our competition sells a similar igniter kit (as below) for over $52.00!!

 

LIQUID ELEMENT™ CONDUCTIVE ELECTRIC MATCH PRIMER/PYROGEN

Now you can make electric igniters that require NO SOLDERING OF BRIDGEWIRES TO LEADS yet will ignite reliably using as little as a 9 volt "transistor" battery up to and including 12 volt automotive and every DC voltage in between! Simply strip 3/16" of insulation from lead wires and dip into the primer slurry - allow to dry and use as is or dip them again in your favorite match composition/pyrogen. Make 50 to 100 igniters per hour for as little as 5 cents each - with no soldering! Our procedure allows you to use your lead wires over and over saving you money and time. Each bottle comes with complete instructions and enough primer and binder to make up to 400 igniters (allowing for 10-15% as waste). Liquid Element™ acts as both primer/booster and pyrogen! Basically foolproof!
  This is our most popular selling pyrogen kit for over 15 years!!

ELECTRIC SQUIB AND IGNITER PYROGEN

Make your own electric igniters for a few pennies each using our pyrogen and any number of DC powered heating elements. Simply solder nichrome wire, tinned copper wire or printed igniter "chips" to 22 or 24 gauge twin lead wire, dip in the pyrogen and use. The pyrogen comes in 1/2 oz bottles that you mix a small amount of Acetone to make a thick batter for dipping - enough for 50 to 90 igniters. Comes with instructions. Why pay over $1.00 each for commercial igniters?! We recommend our Firefox Custom Chips (Stock# F515F instead of the Davey Clones 51 awg) or homemade elements using resistance wire diameters between 35 and 45 awg for best ignition.

ELECTRIC IGNITER PYROGEN - PYROMAG™ MAGNUM SECONDARY PYROGEN

Our Pyromag magnum™  pyrogen has a higher combustion temp and burns longer (typically 2 to 3 seconds) than other pyrogens and because of the molten product and superheated sparks, it is capable of igniting the most difficult of applications. It should be used as an overcoal with a primer such as ELV or Liquid Element for reliable ignition. This professional secondary pyrogen is used extensively by special effects and rocket enthusiasts for positive ignition!

METALLIC H3 ELECTRIC MATCH PYROGEN

The Matallic H3 has a low enough ignition point to be used by itself on the element wire with no primer, however, it can be used as a secondary coat as well. It has a brilliant display of sparks when it fires for positive ignition of the application. As with all our pyregen kits, they come complete with adhesive, oxidizer and instructions. Why pay over $1.00 each for commercial igniters?

E.L.V. NON-CONDUCTIVE ELECTRIC MATCH PYROGEN™

Designed to be used as the primer/ booster to initate the main pyrogen (secondary, which is coated over it), the ELV primers ignite easily at lower temperatures and combust (rather than pop) at a pre-determined rate at very high temperature to reliably ignite other pyrogens and metal mixtures used as an overcoat (optional). Using zirconium and other exotic metals, we have designed two different types - conductive and non-conductive. The conductive type requires no bridge-wire so there is no soldering and ignites with as little as a 9 volt transistor battery. Simply strip 3/8" of insulation from leads, dip the tip 1/8" into the primer, dry and dip it again in a pyrogen of your own making or use our Original Blend™, Pyromag Magnum™ or Metallic H3™ for results that will have other match-makers drooling at their sight! The non-conductive type is applied to the element wire (bridge-wire) only followed by an overcoat of another high energy pyrogen. It will ignite using as little as a AA (1.5 volt) battery. Using these primers, positive, inexpensive electric ignition is easily obtained! Each type comes with enough primer to make several hundred igniters (up to 500). Do you need smaller igniters for small black powder type motors? use the conductive ELV primer alone on 26 gauge twin lead wire with the final coat of NC or CA lacquer! Works great alone!

NOZZLE FORMING TOOL SETS - MOLDED GRAPHITE COMPOSITE ROCKET MOTORS

Machined from high carbon steel and aluminum, these tool sets offer the hobbyist a means to make high heat & erosion resistant graphite composite nozzles for use in higher combustion temp composite rocket motors and others. The sets consist of a heavy wall carbon steel mold sleeve, base with divergence forming cone and a ram which is completely adjustable according to the degree of erosion and heat/gas resistance required. You can design and produce nozzles to burn out slightly for core burning geometries or those that have little or no erosive loss to retain full pressure during combustion for bates grain and moon burning geometries, etc. Make 25 to 50 nozzles per hour for as little as $0.15 each! Using a mixture of powdered graphite and other materials, you simply add a measured amount of mix to the mold sleeve, compress to a mark on the ram and eject. The more pressure used, the higher the density and the more erosion resistant they are. Once you have several, they are cure baked in an oven and drilled any diameter you need for the proper exhaust vent - fully adjustable for pressure release! The sets produce nozzle pellets the diameters listed which are shrink controlled by the oven heat. They are designed to fit the casings listed for each but can be made to fit casings of similar size as well.

EPDM RUBBER - CHAMBER INSULATION

This thin rubber insulation is applied to the inner wall of the motor chamber to insulate the casing from the combustion heat generated during operation, thus increasing the life of reuseable casings and allowing adequate low cost materials to be used as expendable motors. The propellant may be cast directly into the EPDM lined chambers or an additional liner of carbon cloth be placed between EPDM and propellant thus allowing the higher cost EPDM to be used again.

NOZZLE INSULATION & BUSHING STOCK - FIBERGLASS

Often the choice for suitable low cost or scrap expendable motor casing material doesn't quite match available bulkhead and nozzle stocks. This high strength, rigid, cured, heat resistant, fiberglass sheathing may be epoxy laminated inside casing to fit smaller nozzle od's. It's rough texture easily accepts epoxies and bonds well to both motor casing and nozzle. Also acts as an insulator to drain extreme heat being transferred by highly conductive nozzle materials such as graphite or exotic metals. Thus, protecting the casing from possible burn through or other damage. Can be cut with shears or scissors, drilled and machined. All are fiberglass cloth and .040" thick.

CARBOSPHERES - CONDUCTIVE CARBON POWDER - HOLLOW MICROSPHERES

This specially developed, low density carbon powder was ordered by NASA for the (now cancelled) New Advanced Space Shuttle Project. The material cost the government well over $125.00 per pound and was never used. We have all 80 drums @50 lbs net each. Although the manufacturer could give us no information on it's application, they did tell us the material is pure carbon, low density (.198 g/cc), light weight, conductive powder of 99.7 wt % passing 50 mesh and 22.7 wt % passing 325 mesh. Capable of withstanding temperatures well in excess of 4000F and very lightweight, it should make excellent nozzles to increase heat resistance and reduce both weight and abrasive wear on spindle. It may also be used as a mold release agent (dry lubricant) in that it is "slick" like it's older brother Graphite - yet lighter in weight. Also great for use in conductive bridge-wireless electric igniters!! Can be milled to reduce particle size if needed. Full 50 lb drums can be shipped by UPS.
