It is intended to be used for battle field/exercise signalling, ship to ship / ship to shore signalling, LZ/DZ location and general signalling at airports/oil rigs. The 26.5mm Signal Cartridge functions consistently and effectively in all expected operational environmental conditions at temperatures ranging from -46°C to +71°C (Military) and -20°C to +50°C (Commercial).

The cartridges have an ignition percentage of 99% when conditioned at 21 C+-3.

Articles should remain within the original sealed package and be stored within a temperature controlled environment of +5°C to +30°C; relative humidity should not exceed 70%. Storage outside of these conditions will not be warranted and may reduce the shelf life and lead to the articles not functioning as intended.
