Sulfur Flour (not the same as "flowers"). Used as a fuel, usually in compositions with nitrate oxidizers; as a component of black powder (serving as both a binder and fuel); in rocket propellants as the oxidizer for zinc. Ours is 99.9% pure and has a very low acid content.

Since you need a lot of black powder in fireworks making, buying sulfur in larger quantities or in a black powder kit will save you money.

Our low-acid sulfur is the type used in most commercial fireworks in the US. Low-acid sulfur is safer to work with, in fireworks. To reduce explosion risks in fireworks making, avoid using "flowers of sulfur."
