Silicon spray

Unread postAuthor: paaiyan » Wed Mar 28, 2007 9:24 pm

Has anyone tried using Silicon Spray as a fuel for a spray&pray cannon? I just found a can in my garage and sprayed it over a match, impressive fireball, bigger than the static guard I've been using. Any input?

EDIT: Spellcheck, and changed up some links to different and better MSDS'.

But with the help of google, I found the MSDS of a "liquid silicone" and I can only infer that your silicone spray is basically the same stuff but in an aerosol can. "ST-29 Silicone Fluid" is a liquid product sold by Sil-Tech Corporation, and it is indeed very flammable.

It shouldn't corrode your chamber wall. Seems to me like it could be used as a fuel just fine, but that is all in theory.


Starter fluid makes huge fireballs too, but I dont know if it'd be a good fuel. I'll stick to pneumatics. 8)

Hmm, gunk bad. I've got a terribly complicated ignitor that just about nothing could possibly gunk up or keep from working so that's not a problem. All I know is it made a whole lot of fire, really fast.

One of my friends claims to have had greater success using silicone spray than he has had with any other aerosol. I haven't seen it used however, so I can't say for sure that it will work effectively.

I think "THE spray fuel" is ether in a can.

Anything else is probably "diluted" by some contents, and silcon spray is probably quite expensive - but interesting thought.

I have no clue how much the stuff costs, all I know is there's a can in my garage and like I said, neighbors a mechanic and he has uber a lot of it. As for ether in a can, where would I obtain this?
