In this work, a stable suspension recipe and the optimal mode for the EPD process are presented. The possibility of precision control of the thermite material composition in electrophoretic deposition technology is considered. The wave combustion reaction occurs in the composition range from 17 % to 53 % wt. CuOx content in deposited layer. The obtained Al-CuOx samples shows high density of the released energy: 2407 J/g in air atmosphere and 1954 J/g in argon atmosphere measured by DSC. The velocity of combustion wavefront propagation Combustion wave front propagation velocity determined by high-speed video camera reached 3,5 m/s.Keywords: Thermite materials, powder mixtures, electrophoretic deposition, Al-CuO, wavwe combustion
