how safe?

— Posted by Wombleofdeath on 3:36 am on April 6, 2002

hey im kinda new here and havent had much experience. i want to know what quantities you would mix sodium chlorate and sugar and if any thing else would be needed to make a co2 bomb and how safe it would be to handle.

if your a newb at this why dont you just work with filling up the co2 with blackpowder and then work your way up to chemicals, also what your talking about as in most flammble stuff, friction, static, or a spark could ignite it

Equal parts mate, jus mix it together.

if mixing sodium chlorate and sugar makes the sodium chlorate more powerful, if you mixed bp and sugar would it make the bp more powerful or just dull it down or stay the same?

Ok. The Sodium chlorate is powerful enough on its own without help, it burns hot and violently when ignited because it is a very strong oxidant. Its just that the bastards that manufacture it have put flame retardants in it to prevent that, so in order to set it off you need another oxidant (this just acts as like ignition fuel) thats all its needed for, you can use sugar, gunpowder or practically anything with a powder consistancy (the flour silos around my area are renowned for exploding when some stupid fucks start smoking around them) so the sugar just acts as a starter to get the sodium chlorate running it doesnt add to the power, believe me its powerful enough as it is.:biggrin:

oh, ok my bad

also would bp have ne affect on Sodium chlorate and sugar, instead on putting half Sodium chlorate and half sugar in a co2 bomb what would happen if you put one part Sodium chlorate, one part sugar, and one part bp, would it have any difference?

but would it be more powerful than just the Sodium chlorate and the sugar?

— Posted by Mr Tripp on 6:03 pm on April 6, 2002

I should think so yeah.  The more additives you put in (as long as theyre like compatable) the stronger the substance can get.  If you were to mix Sodium chlorate with Gunpowder or napalm etc, there would be varied effects.  but it would be none the less potent my friend:cool:
Just becareful about adding Sulphur (If any to the mixture)
Sulphar slows the burning down, and reacts poorly with sodium chlorate, but creates a large cloud of sulphur smoke when burning which hurts the lungs like fuck:biggrin:

ok so if i filled a 12 gram co2 with one part Sodium chlorate, one part sugar, and one part blackpowder, then i dug a 1 foot hole and put the co2 bomb in it then burried it then ignited the fuse around how big would the crater be?

— Posted by Mr Tripp on 6:21 pm on April 6, 2002

Hmmm I’m not really sure of the size of the crator, ive never really done an experiment like that, whenever I test something out I pick a car or home.  But I can tell you the crater would be fairly large, you could bury a dog or maybe a midget in it hehe:cool:

lol i like the miget idea, but i never knew that a co2 bomb with Sodium chlorate is that powerful, im going out tomorrow and buying like a 50 pund bag of weed killer, is there any particular brand that you use?

— Posted by Mr Tripp on 6:26 pm on April 6, 2002

Just regular Garden based stuff, a Green tub that says Sodium Chlorate Weedkiller on it “Warning do not expose to naked flame” hehe I cant stop laughing whenever I see that:biggrin:

— Posted by Pyr0Maniac on 6:28 pm on April 6, 2002

the lable says “Sodium Chlorate Weedkiller” ??

try not to get somehting that blatent in the use the are starting to monitor things like that that are used for drug man and it is not that far away they start watching for bomb making with this 9-11 shit, but allways remeber to look for purity of the product

— Posted by Pyr0Maniac on 10:40 pm on April 6, 2002

wut look on the package and the higher the % of Sodium Chlorate  the better?

— Posted by paladinpress on 5:37 am on April 7, 2002

Yes the higher the better what you need to start doing now, cause it sounds like you new to the game and it is not a bad thing is learn the chem you need and fall in love with the word “75%” go to the local garden shop , at the garden shop look for saltpeter in 75% and also soudim nitrate, and potash, as most can be cleaned with acetone bath’s
