moldable thermite


Hello guys from the last weak I was doing various experiments with thermite mix made from aluminum and iron oxide . Everything is going very well but I was looking a way to make this thermite mix moldable and sticky so that it can be made into any desired shape and sticky so that the mixture remains on its place and doesn't slip

depends on what youre using it for, if youre looking for low gas production, then i really dont have an answer. However if youre going for the view, the flame and molten metals, then you might use flourocarbon ? Or other energetic binders. I think normal urethane binders will burn much less fierce.

I just want that the mix remains on its place even if the object (for example chair )on which the thermite mix is kept went upside down .

Many compounds that would be combined with Thermite would melt causing the failure of adhesion to whatever surface you are trying to attach it to. The same would apply to whether or not you attached it using some other mechanical system. Thermite burns and follows Newton's law of gravity. There might still be a way??? I'll let you know if I come up with something.

There's no way I can think of doing this, because once the thermite starts it's going to melt/evaporate/destroy any sort of sticky substance.

The only way I can think of doing this is to have it stick there by conventional sticky binders whathaveyou while it's still a solid and then put a powerful magnet on the otherside of the thing you want it to stick to. As the thermite goes off, the resultant molten iron is attracted to the magnet.

Although I can't see this have a sucess to any great degree, it's the only way I see this working

We have to try out this as a binder for plastique. It certainly circumvents the toxicity issues that some of the energetic binders have.
