Fireworks have been astounding audiences throughout the globe for hundreds of years, and if the pictures above are some signs, This year's presentations are sure to be equally as magnificent as decades past. By several accounts, fireworks were considered to scare away bad spirits. The invention of fireworks led to the invention of pyrotechnic weaponry not the other way around. Sometimes between 600 and 900 C.E., Chinese alchemists inadvertently mixed saltpeter with sulfur and charcoal, unintentionally stumbling upon the primitive chemical recipe for gunpowder. On a darker note, there is accounts of fireworks being strapped to rats to be used in medieval warfare.
Boom. Hiss. Some firework recipes consist of sound elements. As each layer burns off, it releases a gas, making the whistling sound associated with most firework rockets. Given their ingredients, it is sensible that fireworks aren't as ideal for the environment. Exploding a firework releases heavy metals, dioxins, perchlorates along with other air pollutants to the air, and these pollutants have a serious health effects in high doses. Again, given their components, it is probably not too surprising that recycling burst fireworks is not an option. If you're attempting to dispose of unused fireworks, it is a fantastic idea to call them as well, as most have specific disposal procedures for explosives.
Do not worry, chemists are developing more eco-friendly firework recipes. The work is aimed at creating more eco-friendly flares for army use, but may also be implemented to civilian fireworks. Some fireworks which use nitrogen abundant compounds instead of perchlorates have been utilized in displays, but the challenge is creating friendly products as inexpensive as choices. Americans have been putting off fireworks to celebrate their independence since 1777, at least. Some of the very early Freedom Day celebrations included fireworks.

#1 One Kilo Cakes (1000 grams)
We all know that the legal limit for artillery cakes in the US is 500 grams. But what if I told you that Black Cat is creating two 1000 grams cakes? That is right! One Kilo cakes are coming to the US. If you are wondering how this is possible then keep on reading.
So what Black Cat Fireworks is doing to make this 1000 grams cake legal for the states is very simple yet genius! The idea is that they are creating two individual 500 grams cakes that you put next to each other and light them at the same time. You can obviously shot them individually but they are designed to be shot together where one of the cakes will have half of the design and the other one will have the other. This is a new category that we will bring to Elite Fireworks Supercenter, being one of the first national companies to carry 1000 grams cakes in the US.
So here is what we know about the upcoming kilo cakes:
There are going to be two of them, and both cakes will be zipper cakes. If you are not familiar with zipper cakes then please watch the video of Iron Dome System by Black Cat to get an idea of what zippers are. One of the two cakes will be a 1000 grams fireworks display with dual 51 shots for each individual cakes. The other one will be a 1000 grams finale with dual 74 shots for each individual cakes. So you are getting a total of 102 shots for one and 148 for the other.
Something to notice is that yes we do have products up to 300 shots such as Multiplicity which is a 500 grams zipper cakes. You must understand that with products like that yes you are getting a lot of shots but you are honestly getting sparklers going up in the air because each individual shot is weak. Whereas with these two new cakes you are get twice the power meaning it will be twice the fun!
*Photos and videos coming soon!

Diablo is the most popular Black Cat Fireworks artillery shell every produced, and yet is one of cheapest compared to other 60-gram canister kits. Bright colors, awesome reports, and four beefy HDPE tubes — there’s a reason why these are the favorite year in and year out. These canister shells will send the devil back where he belongs.
