A sparkler burns with a beautifully vibrant shower of sparks over a long period of time . . . up to a minute! It never explodes, like a firecracker, which is designed to explode quickly after being lit. The reason for this is that the main ingredients of a sparkler are an oxidizer, a fuel, a combustible binder, and either iron, steel, aluminum, or another kind of metal powder. Additionally, sparklers may contain other components to provide color and effect.
