Abstract : The hazard classification procedures of TB 700-2 are improperly applied to pyrotechnics. Forty-six test methods were proposed as replacements for the currently applied methods. The proposed test methods were subjected to engineering review and analysis including the testing of two materials by six methods. Fifteen test methods were recommended for inclusion in a pyrotechnics supplement to TB 700-2.
