1. A pyrotechnic primer charge or delay composition composed of REACH (Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals)-compliant constituents which are toxicologically unproblematical for human beings and the environment, the pyrotechnic primer charge or delay composition comprising:
at least one oxidizing agent;
at least one reducing agent;
at least one additive that is slag or framework-forming; and
at least one mineral binder,
wherein the at least one mineral binder comprises amorphous polysilicic acids, and
wherein the amorphous polysilicic acids of the delay composition are processed with the aid of lithium water glass solutions to give granular material, such that the at least one mineral binder is not hygroscopic.
