Flares are handy devices you can use to signal distress and to indicate your position. They are designed to be visible even in rain or darkness on the road, on the high seas or anywhere in the wild outdoors.
Not just for maritime, military, aviation and heavy industrial users, they are a good idea for anyone to carry as an extra security measure on the road or at sea.
However, pyrotechnic flares come with some major drawbacks. They can cause burns, emit toxic fumes and require special training and special disposal.
The Major Drawbacks of Pyrotechnic or Chemical Flares
Pyrotechnic flares are hazardous to use in emergency and automotive situations where there may be fumes, leaking petrol or proximity to fuel or solvent. Traditional flares also contain chemicals such as magnesium, potassium perchlorate and strontium nitrate. Combustion of these chemicals emits harmful fumes that should not be inhaled.
Another drawback of traditional flares is that you can only use them once and they have an expiration date. This often entails wasteful disposal of unpredictable expired flares. The burn time of pyrotechnic flares is limited, typically only about one minute.
Fortunately, LED flares are now available, removing the risks of pyrotechnic flares.
