Abstract : Energetic compositions and the process for obtaining same for use as me ignitable composition in infrared-emitting decoy flares, for high-temperature ignition compositions, and the like, are disclosed. These compositions are attained by combining a fluorinated hydrocarbon, either in a liquid state or as a water emulsion, with a powdered metal fuel such as aluminum, magnesium, titanium or zirconium to yield volatile solvent free energetic compositions.
