Saran is used as a chlorine donor and fuel much in the same way as parlon and PVC are. It can also serve as a binder, in which case acetone is a suitable solvent. It is known a superior chlorine donor due to its high chlorine content and superior burning characteristics.

Chlorine donors in fireworks are a chlorine-rich compound when combined with a fuel within a pyrotechnic flame, certain colors can be produced or enriched. The following table can be used whenever we want to substitute one chlorine donor for another. In this case, we would use more of the weaker donor to account for the missing chlorine.

Common chlorine donors and their approximate chlorine contents:

Ammonium chloride – 65%
Ammonium perchlorate – 20%
Chlorowax – 30-70%
Dechlorane – 78%
Hexachlorobenzene – 75%
Hexachloroethane – 90%
Lead chloride – 25%
Lindane – 73%
Mercury chloride – 15%
Parlon – 70%
PVC – 56%
Saran (PVDC) – 73%
Copper(I)Chloride (CuCl) ~50%

Saran is not particularly dangerous or toxic.

    Superior chlorine donor. Never disappointed! Very fine powder the only possible drawback is the dustiness of this powder.
