ROCKET PROPELLANT #6

COMMENTS: Burns very fast, producing a lot of smoke. This is not a very effective propellant due to its low-energy density. In addition, the relatively high density of zinc adds much weight to the rocket, further reducing this propellant's effectiveness.

DANGER/CAUTION
Zinc/sulfur mixtures are sensitive to initiation and can be explosive when loose.
