Barium Nitrate Ba(NO3)2
A fine white dense crystalline powder (cubic crystals),
tends to go hard and lumpy. Although green color
is weak, it is often used in compositions with Barium
Chlorate. Also used in the production of portfire
and lance compositions. It is also present in some
flash formulations, especially in reports/salutes.
Its use with aluminum powder produces very bright
effects at high temperature (waterfalls and illuminations
lights etc.) or silvery gold effects at lower temperatures.
It melts at 500 degrees.
