And then let's look at the other falacy of the truther lie of nano thermite paint. Why does nano thermite react better than regular thermite? Because the particles are smaller and the reaction can happen faster. Mix it in paint and guess what you've done. You've completely FUBARed the reaction between the iron oxide and the aluminum no matter HOW small the particles are because the particles are not together. Why else do you think not a single truther has been able to demonstrate nano thermite paint? Yet despite this evidence they can't refute, truthers will continue to pretend any bull(*)(*)(*)(*) they dream up is what really happened including the fantasy that is nano thermite paint.
Heat applied to the iron oxide releases the oxygen from the molecule which is free to bond with the aluminum. The product is iron and aluminum oxide. The overall reaction is exothermic so the heat of the reaction precipitates the release of more oxygen. The reaction continues until the supply of iron oxide is exhausted, or the heat of the reaction dips below the temperature needed to release more oxygen.How does nano thermite work?
A thin layer of thermite coating a large mass of iron could not maintain the heat of reaction for a significant period of time. The iron, being conductive, would conduct the heat away from the reaction.
Someone who coated a beam with a paint thin layer of thermite would notice that the reaction would be contained within a short distance of the point of ignition, as the heat of ignition would be rapidly dissipated through the mass of the beam.
That being said, RWF. Who are these people that painted these beams? Can you located any of them? Who added the thermite to the paint? Who ignited the paint and how was it ignited?

A great deal of intelligence can be invested in ignorance when the need for illusion is deep
And when did this take place? And why has no one come forward to say they "painted" the beams? How were beams painted that were behind walls? How does any substance burn sideways, as would be necessary to shear vertical beams?I believe the nano t was mixed in with the paint, and the crew happily painted it on. They never knew what they were painting on. See how that works? It's called compartmentalization. Happens all the time in the world of espionage.
