This experiment  should not be done indoors or by anyone under the age of 21. Solo Scientific is not responsible for any damage or injury
caused by doing this experiment. This experiment was designed to show one of the many advantages of the Aurora Fire Starter over one of
the most common fire starters on the market.  Follow the instructions below and you will watch one of the most common fire starters in the
world disintegrate before your eyes. Our Aurora Fire Starter has an o-ring seal that protects the fire starting rod from potentially corrosive
salt water.
Caution: Use eye protection. The gas released by this experiment could be ignited and burn.


1. Container large enough to house one standard block type magnesium fire starter.
2. Table salt
3. Warm water
4. (1) block type magnesium fire starter
5. Safety Glasses


!. Dissolve 1/4 cup of table salt for every 1.5 cups of warm water inside your container.
2. Place (1) block type magnesium fire starter in the salt water solution.
3. You will notice after a short period of time that bubbles will begin to form at the surface of the solution as the block type magnesium fire
starter begins to disintegrate. The fire starting rod will fall off of the unit within 24 hours if the unit remains in the solution and eventually
disintegrate to nothing due to salt water exposure. This experiment simulates what could happen in a salt water environment should your
equipment become wet by salt water.
