Colour Smokes are classified as non-dangerous goods, no permits or licences are needed to purchase or use them. However they have been developed for use by photographers, SFX technicians etc. USE RESPONSIBLY. A detailed instruction sheet is included with each order.
These smoke emitters burn slowly, emitting plumes of smoke. They contain the only composition for producing safe, non-toxic coloured smoke. The smoke poses no known health or safety hazards when used responsibly. Shelf life is 3 years, however our stock is turned over several times a year. Ignite with butane lighter, use in smoke cup etc.
Use caution as smoke emitters burn hot and colors WILL stain objects that are directly next to the smoke stream. In general, if you are at least 30-40 cm from the smoke cartridge staining should not occur. We have sold these for many years to photographers, top fashion magazine shoots etc, all without incident. Not for indoor use unless for air con testing etc. These are used to test smoke alarms systems! Use common sense!
Use WHITE if staining is a concern. Must be used on a non-flammable surface such as aluminium pie trays etc. Our colour smokes are compatible with each others, so you can burn the smokes side by side (in a trail) having a colour change effect or mix them together to create your own custom colour.
Dark Grey is best for burning buildings for film/sfx work. All smokes can be crushed and used in smoke cups etc. We suggest you light with a small propane jet lighter.
COLOUR SMOKE EMITTERS ARE HOT WHEN BURNING. IF BEING HELD IN HAND…PLEASE…use our smoke holders.
