MOLTEN
The thermite reaction is simple to set up and generates temperatures greater than 2,000 °C, making it useful for applications such as welding and smelting, as well as use in incendiary devices. This version used chromium, Cr2O3 + 2Al → 2Cr + Al2O3, but the reaction is more commonly performed with iron or copper.
