Ethanol, methanol, acetone, isopropanol, and butanone are commonly used in pyrotechnic preparation. It also can be used as a binder.

Red gum is not particularly dangerous or toxic.

    Good choose, fast delivery time, average prices. All this words about this service. I am a customer of this service 1.5 years, like it

  4. John Hutchinson

    Very fine and pure. Ready to use right out of the bag. I’ve used other sources of red gum before that just didn’t stand up to this red gum that comes from down under. Great binder and fuel additive. Used with a great pure perchlorate from this company and you can make some beautiful effects and bangs.
