When I was reading up on making it you just used aluminum window screen shredded in a blender to a Fine powder.

You want the aluminum powder as fine as it can be. Whether by grinding down screens or coke cans or buying it off the shelf. Doesn't really matter where the aluminum comes from as long as you get it nice and fine.

aluminum powder is available from pyrotechnic suppliers. If you order the powder and oxidizers at the same time, bad things will happen to you.

Ah yes, Tannerite...the good old days.

Fine mesh aluminum, ammonium perchlorate and prilled ammonium nitrate. It's also on the MSDS patent list, public record. I think they also throw in some BS like titanium to make it 'proprietary'.

FWIW, there is a substantial difference between "powdered" and "shredded"

The proof is in the pudding.


Just buy it online, the powdered stuff, from any reputable supplier- no big thing !

I get mine here :

Pay particular focus to that german au section.... it'll put you a little more in the mindset of what you are getting.
