Because the gel burns with a steady clear blue flame with low luminosity, the flame is all but invisible to the naked eye and therefore safer to use in a combat situation as compared to other heating alternatives.
Because of its high ignition point and low vapor pressure, there are no restrictions on how the PyroPac Fuel Gel Product can be shipped. It is not classified as hazardous before, during, or after it is used. It's even safe to transport by airplane. The gel is water soluble and non-toxic with little to no generation of odor, vapor, or smoke emissions while burning. The residue remaining after use is a small amount of sandy powder that can be blended into the soil base leaving no trace behind.
This energy source, the PyroPac was developed to provide a product to heat your beverage and entree' at the same time in less than eight minutes. If needed, it is even possible to continue boiling to achieve purified water while out in the field. YES, if it continued to boil will purify your water.
This product was designed to use only what you need with no waste, using "green sense." It was designed and developed to provide an efficient heat source for the Back Packer Soldier, and had to be safe, odorless, smokeless, non restrictive, economical, non toxic and yet friendly with our environment. PyroPac does just that and more. It has an indefinite shelf life and when used as instructed is considered a "GREEN PRODUCT."
Milpack Fuel Gel (PyroPac) Military version has been approved and contracted by the Department of Logistics Agency (DLA) as the replacement for Trioxane Fuel bars used for years by the US Army. A safer and greater heat source for combustion per unit mass was needed to replace the old "Heat Tabs". In addition to improve efficiency it has reduced the weight burden of the soldier and provided a non restrictive transportable product...YES, this can go on an airplane!

pyropac is awesome
- This is a great product, at a truly awesome price. Long burn time, high output of heat. Minimal soot on pot and stove afterward, makes cleanup easy. Only downside I can think of is space. The packs take up more room than comparable solid fuels.
