Widely accepted as the most popular and trusted of all fuses, "American Visco" is one of the highest-quality safety fuses sold today. Hence its name, American Visco is manufactured right here in the U.S.A. and is well-known throughout the pyrotechnic community for its high quality and unwavering reliability. Many hobbyists recognize this brand as the "gold standard" when it comes to safety/cannon fuse.
Used for a variety of both hobbyist and professional pyrotechnic applications, American Visco consists of a black powder core wrapped in two layers of robust string. Finally, the fuse is coated with a thick layer of nitrocellulose lacquer, which prevents messy fraying and makes it highly water-resistant. With a diameter of about 1/8", the result is a very strong, yet still pliable fuse that consistently "passes fire" at a reliable burn rate of approximately 40 seconds per foot.
CannonFuse.com offers American Visco in three colors: "Classic" green, "Pyro" red and "U.S.A. Striped" red/white/blue. Use each color as a convenient way to keep track of different projects and finale sets, or simply pick your favorite color for a fun change of pace! Whether you're new to the world of amateur pyrotechnics or just looking for a reliable, durable and hot-burning fuse, you can't go wrong with tried-and-true American Visco.
