Black powder

Standard composition: 75 % potassium nitrate, 10 % sulphur, 15 % charcoal. The properties of black powder and nitrocellulose-based ball powder can be significantly improved by applying a plasma-based protective coating. A thin hydrophobic coating as protection against moisture absorption leads to an improvement of the burning behaviour.
