Thermal Studies on the Boron-Molybdenum Trioxide Pyrotechnic Delay System
Pyrotechnic delay compositions are designed to undergo self-sustained combustion in the absence of air and are used as timing devices. They consist typically of an intimate mixture of a metal powder with an inorganic oxidant. This work reports a preliminary study on the boron-molybdenum oxide delay system using thermal analysis techniques, supplemented by X-ray diffraction analysis.
