Where can i get this thermite powder?.
 Rex  -  April 26, 2006, 19:48
Nothing but HOT! (Like in very very varm) :P
 Aslak  -  April 26, 2006, 22:28
I've got the recipie for this.
Gnaget (guest)  -  April 27, 2006, 00:48
Can anyone identify the voice over guy? I swear it is Richard Hammond from Top Gear, but you know, those brits all look and sound alike
jojo (guest)  -  April 27, 2006, 06:27
my neighbour car deserves one of those...
TS (guest)  -  April 27, 2006, 09:50
Yep it is Richard Hammond from Top Gear. He was one of the presenters on Brainiac on some Satelite channel (like cable I guess) in the UK.
vitlök (guest)  -  April 27, 2006, 20:14
cool i like that because the car is france
Matzi (guest)  -  April 27, 2006, 21:23
Yes, as Mike said. Where can i get this thermite powder?
hypnotik  -  April 28, 2006, 04:36
you can make it.

I never knew the effectiveness of thermite before watching this video. Now I know why they use thermite grenades to sabotage enemy equipments and supplies.
mikey (guest)  -  April 29, 2006, 23:38
coolamundo...awsome

The thermatite they used is pretty simple to make: steel oxide ( rust ) and aluminum powder. The hard part is getting it to ignite. When I made this stuff the only thing that could cook it off was a road flare. Of course I used stuff from my garage so the quality was kind of poor. As a warning, it will melt through pretty much anything, including concrete.

...no shit.
uhyeah (guest)  -  May 1, 2006, 16:02
cool
fish (guest)  -  May 2, 2006, 00:13
this is great, i want to try it out.
nl (guest)  -  May 3, 2006, 20:56
GWB sure was smart to use it to bring down the twin towers

careful, your tinfoil hat is about to fall off

Gnaget (guest) Can anyone identify the voice over guy? I swear it is Richard Hammond from Top Gear, but you know, those brits all look and sound alike ^^^ That's because it IS Richard Hammond, he presents the show on Sky One in the UK (it's called Brainiac, and it's absolutely bloody awesome).
mr mxyzptlk (guest)  -  May 11, 2006, 11:03
typical sky one show encouraging racism.
EZ (guest)  -  May 15, 2006, 23:00
HAHA..... More inportantly... because It´s French
Lunar Shadow (guest)  -  May 24, 2006, 11:33
Nice
someone (guest)  -  May 29, 2006, 20:07
its iron oxide theres no such thing as steel oxide because steel is a compound
Throwback (guest)  -  June 2, 2006, 22:28
For the record guys, a good way to get thermite to burn is by using a magnesium ribbon coiled through the thermite, with some coming out the top as a fuse. No problem. I think the actual proprtion of iron oxide to aluminium is also a factor, much like with gunpowder.
me (guest)  -  June 7, 2006, 21:15
Well, if you have the guts, please try igniting the thermite with a match just stroken. If you have the guts :D For the wiser people out there, please use a some sparkling fireworks instead.
fuck (guest)  -  June 10, 2006, 22:56
how can I download it???
boarder (guest)  -  June 20, 2006, 21:52
if you have the guts... read: if you lack any sort of intelligence a match wouldn't burn hot enough to ignite the thermite anyway, but still...
mike (guest)  -  July 15, 2006, 17:32
boring want more explosion
Nick (guest)  -  July 17, 2006, 02:18
All you need is a magnesium ribbon, a blow torch, and about two days and you can make this shit like nobody's business.
Killa (guest)  -  July 25, 2006, 20:13
Gnaget, did you truly think that one person can present only one show? Especialy that these shows (i don't know about UK) aren't daily. Besides, TOP GEAR has three presenters (if you haven't noticed). By the way, thermite doesn't burn through everything. It can't burn through titanium (wich is the strongest world metal, and is used to make the armor plating of a tank). This was stated at one of the braniac shows

Gnaget, if you still don't believe about the presneter take a look here: http://www.bestofgooglevideo.com/video.php?video=129
LOL (guest)  -  August 4, 2006, 17:11
SO fake, YOU CAN SEE ALL THE WIRES AND STUFF
 Draugovininkas  -  August 6, 2006, 23:30
LOL, you are dumb... didn't you see that they use a wire to ignite the thermite? (if you are reffering to the given link by killa then the wires are the means by wich electricity gets to the microwave)
 Emc2  -  August 13, 2006, 17:19
AWESOME!
 Deleted0001  -  September 12, 2006, 20:43
Damn!
TehFeesh (guest)  -  October 6, 2006, 02:10
Magnesium lights thermite pretty well :) You can punk some from science class, or (unconfirmed) i've been told that the Jaguar hood ornament is made of magnesium? Maybe someone can confirm this?
magic 8 (guest)  -  October 27, 2006, 15:58
i doubt it would be made from magnesium... and if i find out they are.... im going on a spree :) but ya... i hope to jesus i dont go to light a roman candle this halloween and find out someone exchanged some of the gun powder with thermite...
nick (guest)  -  January 31, 2007, 07:50
it is richard hammond as the voice and the y hate french cars
Gooba42 (guest)  -  March 23, 2007, 01:42
You can get small blocks of magnesium with strips of flint down one side as camp fire starters from Wal-Mart, REI or Target. I imagine similar stores exist even "over the pond" but I wouldn't know their names.
Steven (guest)  -  April 27, 2007, 01:31
Just mix Iron oxide and aluminium powder ( both very fine like dust). use a firewors fuse
vinod (guest)  -  May 3, 2007, 11:40
good
pyrofreak (guest)  -  September 10, 2007, 19:51
first to clear some things up.. steel is not a compound it is an aloy, second a 50:50 ratieo works fine, third thermite is iron oxide (rust is iron oxides and iron hydroxides and will not work as well) i personaly use magnesium ribon but glyserin on postasium permangonate is a beter and cheeper way to light it.
pyrofreak (guest)  -  September 10, 2007, 19:54
soz it is not iron oxide it is a mix of iron oxide and aluminium buy iron oxide at hardware stores
Manamana (guest)  -  January 22, 2008, 15:59
Those two guys don't look like someone I'd trust with thermite, lol.
Grank (guest)  -  December 5, 2008, 05:21
It is important to use Ferric Oxide (Fe2O3) not Ferrous Oxide. Ferric Oxide is red rust, Ferrous Oxide is black. Magnesium turnings work well. Potassium permanganate and glycerine does not get hot enough to ignite thermite.
Jim (guest)  -  December 26, 2009, 20:00
Thermite is a mixture of aluminum as a solid fuel (used as fuel solid rocket propellants) and iron oxide (Fe2O3) as an oxidizer. Since it oxidizes itself, it does not require atmospheric oxygen to combust, so it can not be put out once the reaction is started. By mass, is 8 parts iron oxide to 3 parts aluminum powder. By volume it will end up being roughly a 1:1 ratio. Be sure to mix it (shaking up in a plastic bag works) to distribute the iron oxide into the magnesium.There is no law against sharing knowledge. I'm not implying how this should be used, only sharing the formula. Aluminum powder, iron oxide, and magnesium ribbon can be purchased in bulk off ebay. To my knowledge there are no U.S. regulations on the ingredients to thermite, as there are only two of them and each have multiple other applications than just making thermite.
Jaa (guest)  -  December 30, 2011, 23:40
A few words about debate: thermite vs titanium. 1.Wolfram is much stronger and he can be in higher temperatures than titanium. 2.Tanks are not made with titanium. 3. Melting point of titanium is over 1600C, temperature of thermite is over 3000C, so - wtf? 4. They should keep thermite straightway on titanium (lake in action with safe).
