The availability of the UN MAN2 designation is a further step forwards in my opinion, but there are some gaps I was hoping other members might clarify their thoughts on.
The UN MAN2 classification is applicable to Acquire Only and covers the 100g rule for pyrotechnic compositions for our purposes, however, there are some relatively fundamental and fairly basic processes which I can't see would be covered. I'll give the following examples
If I make a 100g batch of a dextrin bound composition e.g. blonde streamer and I allow this to dry for several days, I then prime with granulated BP ( stored with a BP A + K ), would I have breached - firstly because the composition which is now 100g + prime is over the 100g limit and secondly because I have "stored" that composition whilst drying for several days
If I roll a total of 100g of a composition - drying each layer for 24 hours before applying the next and final layer of prime ( say over 4 or 5 days ) - have I breached - again because they have been stored for several days whilst drying
Does a similar breach occur whilst assembling the device. E.g. a small 2 inch shell of NEQ < 100g - again because whilst pasting / assembling it has been "stored".
If granulate and roll some small starter cores e.g. gorski red and "store" these for rolling at a later date, even if the amount of composition is 100g, have I breached - again because I have "stored" a composition not covered by my BP only A + K
Essentially, it would seem as though a good next step and first solution to this problem ( assuming this is an issue ) would be to allow the UN MAN2 designation for A + K which will allow for all of the above ?
Thanks for listening.
