Jumbo™ 25kg is a soft formable emulsion explosive with excellent shelf-life and reliability of detonation. It has good water resistance and a high velocity of detonation. The large packaging format is useful for application in open cast and quarries where hard rock / tough ground conditions are experienced. Packaging format is a single 25kg poly-woven sleeve (20cm x 60cm) placed in a carton, making general handling and transport easy.
Explogel™ products are innovative watergel explosives that combine proven watergel explosive technology with the proprietary Expan™ Ammonium Nitrate technology. The inclusion of Expan™ technology ensures the Explogel™ Pillowpak has enhanced sensitivity and energy partitioning for improved results in secondary blasting. Explogel™ Pillowpaks are extensively used in mud blasting and initiated by either 10g/m Zapcord™ or a 6D + detonator.
Explogel™ V is a revolutionary cartridged watergel explosive range that combines proven explosive technology with the proprietary Expan™ Ammonium Nitrate technology. The inclusion of Expan™ ensures a product with enhanced sensitivity and energy partitioning for improved advance and generally coarser fragmentation. The Explogel™ range (which includes V-Series and Explosmooth) consists of six product grades; covering energies from 82% to 239% the energy of standard ANFO (Ammonium Nitrate Fuel Oil). The products are sold in individual cartridges , wrapped in a plastic sleeve which is crimped at both ends with an aluminium clip.
Expanfo™ is an innovative ANFO (Ammonium Nitrate Fuel Oil) product where, in addition to natural porosity, sensitising microspheres are included in each Ammonium Nitrate Prill. Expanfo™ gives superior hanging-wall control and generally more consistent and predictable blast results, especially in tough blasting conditions or when the product is initiated without a primer. Expanfo™ is available in 2 grades varying in product strength and detonation characteristics to provide the customer with a choice for achieving the highest value solution for the specific application.
Emex® is a cartridged emulsion explosive, designed for typical hard rock development, tunneling or very tough stoping conditions. The emulsion is robust and sensitisation with microspheres ensures excellent shelf-life and reliability of detonation. It is a firm, water resistant cartridge which has a formidable consistency for tamping. The high velocity of detonation (VOD) and relatively lower gas volumes (compared to ANFO and watergel) ensure finer fragmentation in tough ground whilst limiting over-break.
