Summary

Determination of particle size and packing density effects on thermite ignition temperatures of three stoichiometric mixtures was made. The three mixtures were 3TiO2 + 4Al; B2O3 + 2Al and 3TiO2 + 3B3O3 +10AI. Comparisons were made of products formed by igniting loose powder and pressed pellets at room temperature and in a furnace pre-heated to 1260°C.
