Abstract : A feasibility study for the casting of a 4.5 inch diameter illuminating flare is reported. A limited evaluation of the flares is conducted. The flares are cast with a polyester-epoxy binder system and utilize magnesium as a fuel and sodium nitrate as the oxidant. A liner system between the composition and the aluminum candle case is described.
