The fuse is the part of any explosive that initiates function (i.e. the detonation) and are used in fireworks, moddel cannons, pyrotechniques and some IEDs. The easiest form consists in a length of hemp or cotton rope saturated with an oxidizer such as potassium nitrate or paper filled with loose gunpowder.

Action only occurs when there is something that initiates it. A fuse, or fuze, initiates controlled explosive functions. Fuses allow for a temporary delay in the detonation of explosives, which gives personnel and equipment time to move away from the site of explosion, or to ignite an object from a distance. A fuse is lit on one end, and the flames travel down the fuse to the site of detonation, where the remaining fuel is ignited.

Background

Action only occurs when there is something that initiates it. A fuse, or fuze, initiates controlled explosive functions. Fuses allow for a temporary delay in the detonation of explosives, which gives personnel and equipment time to move away from the site of explosion, or to ignite an object from a distance. A fuse is lit on one end, and the flames travel down the fuse to the site of detonation, where the remaining fuel is ignited. The simplest form of fuse is lightweight paper rolled up with gunpowder and then lighted, used by the Chinese in the 10th century for launching fireworks.

Used primarily by the military and miners, although homemade ones can be made with the right materials.
