WHISTLING PROPELLANT #3

SOURCE: The Best of AFN III

COMMENTS: Whistle rockets must be made in the same way as a standard firework whistle, in the sense that it must be pressed very firmly for it to produce a whistling effect. The catalyst can be any metal oxide, though the usual ones used are titanium dioxide, copper oxychloride, and red iron oxide.

DANGER/CAUTION
Whistle compositions should NEVER be rammed. They must be pressed, or an explosion may result.
