FIREWORKS-GRADE BLACK POWDER / FUSE POWDER

This type of black powder is characterized by a fire sparks particle effect followed by a very hot flame. It is typically used as propellant in fireworks (lifting charge, igniter charge), as a primer or a component in a pyrotechnic set. WANO offers a wide range of black powder for fireworks, which comes as a blend and in different grain fineness grades.

Another WANO specialty is the production of fuse powder for specific fuses depending on their accurate burning time setting. They meet strict demands of the Technical Terms of Delivery of the Federal Office of Bundeswehr Equipment, Information, Technology and In-Service Support (BAAINBw), as well as various national and international standards. On these terms WANO produces safety fuses, igniter cords and firework fuses.
