Abstract : Magnesium/sodium nitrate illuminating compositions with epoxy resin - E 605 have been studied for luminosity and luminous efficiency by varying fuel oxidizer ratio and binder content. The compositions have been evaluated for impact and friction sensitivities, burn rate, thermal characteristics, and mechanical properties. Flame temperature and combustion products are evaluated theoretically by using REAL program. Experimental results show that, luminosity, burn rate, and calorimetric value are higher for polyester resin-based compositions. The high luminous efficiency composition is achieved with magnesium/sodium nitrate ratio of 70/30 with 4 per cent epoxy resin.
