Dangerous chemical reaction: 2 Components used in Health & Beauty Products have a violent / dangerous reaction when mixed together (risk of explosion if not handled correctly). Strong exothermic reaction has beneficial uses including making fires in damp conditions (survival, camping, backpacking and more). In this video there are 5 demonstrations shown with alterations and interesting effects! My apple burst into flames. This mixture literally erupts in a shower of sparks, smoke and fire!
This reaction involves the use of potassium permanganate (KMnO4) and glycerin (see MSDS for more information) but the glycerin action can also be caused by other household items. This is why you should never mix chemicals or products if you do not know the possible reactions that can occur. Products that have such dangerous reactions should not be stored together.
WARNING: this video is for demonstration purposes. The chemical reaction shown is highly volatile and should not be conducted without significant preparations including but not limited to location awareness, safety gear, knowledge of chemicals & reactions, and responsible supervision. Never attempt to combine these agents in a closed container.
