Here we have 31g of the highest quality magnesium ribbon. Just 3 cm of this metal will create an intense white light that will have you hooked on learning about oxidation and exothermic reactions!
What You Get
31g of highest quality (99.8%) Magnesium ribbon. Approximately 0.5cm width and 0.1mm thick.
How's it work?
Burning Magnesium produces a very bright reaction which liberates a substantial amount of heat energy, easily reaching temperatures of a few thousand degrees. Magnesium ribbon can be ignited using a simple butane lighter or Bunsen burner. Once ignited, the ribbon will burn slowly but steadily down the length of the strand, leaving a flaky, white, Magnesium Oxide residue behind.
After ignition has begun, Magnesium ribbon is difficult to extinguish, so make sure it is stored in a cool air tight container, away from moisture or flames.
