Abstract : Energetic compositions and the process for obtaining same for use as the 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.
