Nah that's okay. Nothing to be sorry about. I'll rattle their cage tomorrow. They have flitter/glitter grades too. Whether these particular powders are distributed in Australia, we will see. If alls good I might just grab 10-15 kg for all of us. Should last each of us a long time- unless someone starts being a dick with the product :-) and I DO mean a dick. Nothing will draw attention more than folks making salutes and discharging them in built up areas. We're talking LOUD here!

I'm sorry, I just thought for those who are unlicensed they may have been reluctant. Anyway it would be great if there is some locally.

Don't know about 'sus'. If you have a close look, 5413H is listed as super pyro powder. I'll enquire if you like. I'm a licenced pyro so you would think I represent their demographic.

Like I said I have talked to Christian from Star Molecule and he is willing to ship. Interesting lead on Eckhart, never noticed they were here,  you would think they'd be a bit sus. All our manufacturers would order overseas right?

Star molecule might be a route if he's willing to ship it. Recently a guy on fireworking asked the question whether or not people have noticed that it's weaker compared to other aluminum but the consensus was it is as good or even better.

It's not on the concern list (see: http://www.pyrolife.com/forum/index.php?topic=125.0) so that's one +1.

Bangkok pyro another? I never ordered off him and he doesn't do chemical sales openly anymore, but he earned a reputation for selling to boomers.

I understand your point of view lemonjelly, such a sensitive topic. I was more concerned with what Bismuth said, enough to last 'forever' and not running the gauntlet overseas all the time. I was not aware of the extreme quantity required to justify a bulk order from them, incredible. I have had people over time supply me. But I am getting low so I would like to start thinking about my stocking up.

Kind Regards,
Jess

yup must agree on this, iv been doing amateur pyro since 2008 and gone through 50+ kilos of KNO3, yes thats right not over estimating either.
to that amount i would have used a pound of dark Aluminium (450g)

All of us working together to import a bulk quantity of Eckhart  5413H??
Nah, with respect, I believe this is exactly what should NOT be attempted. Sorry Jess- chill.
There really isn't any need for any of us to have bulk quantities of Eckhart 5413, but it is handy to the true pyro who is skillful enough to know how to use it to produce the perfect break with the perfect 'doof'!!!!
For the rest of us, like Bismuth, whistle is fine. For small shells <75mm, I only use H3. No flash.
The Eckhart company will send a metric ton or so, by ship, from Germany but unless one of us is the CEO of a company using it as a pigment in paint, cosmetics, plastics or fine metal finishes, it's gunna be a hard one to explain to Customs & Imports.
Plenty of internationals sell it, but they won't deliver overseas. ( I certainly wouldn't be chuffed to know I was flying from Germany to Oz with 1 metric ton of 2 micron Al powder as freight beneath my feet)
So, who's got mates overseas? Preferably with no agenda.

Hi all,
I also would be interested in a larger quantity. However I too haven't found any leads. I believe the best way would be direct. I have heard eckhart only deal in bulk orders and I think the best way would be to organise an order if there is enough interest. Here in Australia we just have to work together and I'm only new to these forums so you all know  who is who and who is trustworthy/unsafe. That's my 2c anyway, but I'm sure our Al quantities are always running low here, not that I'm an 'F' junky. (Well I'm mainly a rocket person and you need a bit more vitamin F to mark the end of travel with  a report when they travel so far, lee would understand that issue more so ;) )

Kind regards,
Jess

** in addition I have also talked to 'Star Molecule' not sure if anyone can comment on their quality stuff, however they seem they would be willing to organise bulk shipping and they have sent here in the past successfully- obviously shipping prices are as always a joke.
