    What is hexamine?

    Hexamine is a white crystalline powder that is soluble in water and alcohol. Hexamine has a variety of uses, including as a fuel or a stabilizer in explosives.

    One of the most common uses of hexamine is as a solid fuel for camping stoves and other portable heating devices. When heated, hexamine decomposes to produce formaldehyde and ammonia, which react with atmospheric oxygen to produce heat and water vapor. This process produces a clean-burning flame that is relatively smoke-free and odourless, making it a popular choice for outdoor activities.

    How are hexamine blocks used?

    Hexamine blocks, also known as hexamine tablets or fuel tablets, are a type of solid fuel that is often used for outdoor cooking and heating. The cubes are small, usually about 1 inch (2.5 cm) in size, and are made from compressed hexamine powder.

    To use hexamine cubes, they are typically placed in a small metal or plastic stove, along with a pot or pan. The cubes are then ignited, either by using a lighter or a match, and allowed to burn. As the cubes burn, they release heat and produce a flame, which heats the pot or pan above.

    Hexamine cubes are commonly used by hikers, campers, and other outdoor enthusiasts who need a portable and convenient source of heat for cooking or warming up food and drinks. They are also used by military forces and emergency responders, who need a reliable and easy-to-use source of heat and energy in the field.

    Hexamine cubes are generally considered safe to use, but it is important to follow the manufacturer's instructions carefully and to use them only in well-ventilated areas. It is also important to keep the cubes away from flammable materials and to extinguish them completely when finished using them.

    Mess Tins

    Large and medium mess tins can be quite versatile and useful for bushcraft, camping, hiking, and other outdoor activities. Here are some potential uses for each size:

    1. Large mess tin: The large mess tin can be used for cooking larger items, such as a roast or a whole fish, or for boiling water to make tea or coffee for a group. It can also be used as a plate for serving food.
    2. Medium mess tin: The medium mess tin can be used for cooking smaller items, such as sausages or eggs, or for heating soup or stew. It can also be used as a bowl for eating.

    Both the large and medium mess tins can also be used as storage containers for food, utensils, or other small items. They can be easily packed into a backpack or other camping gear and are lightweight and durable.

    Overall, mess tins are versatile and practical items for outdoor activities, providing a range of options for cooking and eating on the go.
