All fireworks are made using a wide range of chemicals. Knowing what chemicals do what, and devising formulation for all of the various effects is a fascinating field to study and work with. In this seminar, taught by one of Europe’s top young pyro chemists, will go over the essentials including oxidizers, fuels, modifiers for color and sound, as well as binding strategies for most common fireworks compounds. Attendees will come away with a good foundation of pyro chemistry theory and some tried and true formulas.
