A safety fuse consists of a gunpowder core in a tube formed by jute yarn, which is covered with layers of bitumen (asphaltum), and has an outer wrapper of tough yarn or polymer. It is made in a standard diameter designed to be crimped into blasting caps (Detonators). Safety fuse is manufactured with a specified burn time per meter, e.g. 115 seconds, which means that a length of fuse 100 cm long will take around 115 seconds to burn.
CDET Explosive Industries provides polycoated safety fuse manufactured by its sister concern Commercial Explosives (India) for the purpose of exports only.
