    Under the FCP (Fireworks Control Program), a stable explosive compound that detonates upon percussion is referred to as a fulminate. Fulminates are highly sensitive and can explode with a small amount of force, making them suitable for use in percussion caps and primers. They are commonly used in firearms and other applications where a small, controlled explosion is required. Hyperbolic fuel and forge are not correct answers as they do not describe a stable explosive compound that detonates upon percussion.
