Red-Gray Chips Tested and Determined Not to Be Thermite
I'm shocked, shocked I tell you. Here's the report; there is active discussion going on at JREF. Main point:
The red/gray chips found in the WTC dust at four sites in New York City are consistent with a carbon steel coated with an epoxy resin that contains primarily iron oxide and kaolin clay pigments.(Bolding added for emphasis). Kudos to Chris Mohr for pursuing this matter and to all the folks who contributed funds to the effort. So far no response from the supermagiconanothermite team of Jones, Ryan or Harritt.
There is no evidence of individual elemental aluminum particles of any size in the red/gray chips, therefore the red layer of the red/gray chips is not thermite or nano-thermite.
