Information:

Fuse initiation is as old as blasting, with the advent of gunpowder several centuries ago.

By the decades of the sixties and seventies the product manufactured in Australia and known as Yellow Sump Safety Fuse had reached a high standard of consistency and reliability in performance, given correct storage, handling and usage.

Since then that product has been replaced by a series of fuses imported by suppliers from various overseas sources, some of which have compared unfavourably in performance with the original fuse, which had been an industry standard for decades.
