$13.00 Per Pound

Copper Oxide II Black is typically combined with other metal salts or metal powders to produce a wide range of colors, including red, blue, green, and purple. These colors are created through a process known as thermal decomposition, in which heat from the burning firework causes the metal compounds to break down and emit light in specific wavelengths

Copper oxide II black (CuO) is a compound commonly used in fireworks as a coloring agent. When heated, it produces a black color that can be used to create smoky effects or add depth and contrast to other colors in a fireworks display. Copper oxide II black is also used in pyrotechnic formulas to enhance the burning rate and stability of other chemicals in the mixture.

Copper oxide II black is considered relatively safe to handle and use in fireworks, as it is not highly reactive or explosive on its own. However, as with any pyrotechnic chemical, proper precautions should be taken when handling or working with copper oxide II black to ensure safety and prevent accidents.

    10/10! works great for; thermite, catalyst, and as a blue coloring agent in stars. As for usual, it came super quickly and well packaged. It’s also worth noting that this copper oxide is an exceptional paint pigment.

    Came fast, well packed and labeled! ^^Agreed this is great for thermite mixtures but I will warn you a finer product makes for a quicker reaction. Know what your doing before you do it. Copper thermite in the right circumstances can be explosive. I made my own copper oxide and this product reacts much quicker. Be careful!!
