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. 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.

    The review and rating system needs a tweak I was trying to hit 5 stars but missed and it's set at 3 but I have no way to change it. Need to make it so I can edit or undo the rating please. Fuse is great as always I've been buying it for over a decade from here

    Thanks, Benjamin!
    We appreciate the feedback, and we'll definitely look into correcting the star situation.

The United States Government and our shipping service both restrict our sales to within the United States. Shipping rates are calculated by the carrier (USPS, UPS, etc.), not by or any of its employees.

Fuse and other "hazmat" items MUST travel via USPS Retail Ground, which typically takes 5-9 business days to deliver. We can make no guarantees on delivery.

Please ensure the shipping address you enter is correct. We often received returned packages due to inaccurate addresses. In most cases, if your package is returned to us because the entered address was incorrect, you will have to pay shipping charges again to have it re-shipped. If you choose not to, your original order will be refunded minus your original shipping charges. We have to pay every time we ship a package, and so will you.

In the unlikely event that you are not 100% satisfied with your purchase, you are welcome to send unused product back to us within 90 days. However, we don't pay return shipping, we don't refund the original shipping, and there may be up to a 15% restocking fee, depending on the reason for the return.
