How Do Safety Matches Work and Their Applications

The working principle of safety matches:

Head: oxidizing agent (KClO3, MnO2), combustibles (e.g., sulfur, etc.), a binder.

Matchbox side: red phosphorus, antimony trisulfide, adhesive. Cause of the fire: the decomposition of KClO3 friction → heating → → → red phosphorus combustion caused combustibles match head (e.g., sulfur) combustion.

Advantages: red phosphorus and oxidant separately, relatively safe.
