SOLARGEL-E is a booster sensitive emulsion explosive. It is not sensitive to cap. Obtained from the mixture of ANFO and emulsion. Even though it is generally used in watered holes instead of ANFO, it can also be used in dry holes in order to provide better fragmentation in every kind of rocks and lower explosive costs. For better base shearing, fragmenting and shifting it is recommended to use SOLARGEL-E also as downhole load. SOLARGEL-E is not effected from water. It does not lose its performance while it is in the water. It settles to the bottom of the hole since it is more denser than the water, meanwhile it lifts the water up by displacing with water. SOLARGEL-E, depending on the released energy and blasting values, allows obtaining excellent results in blasting operations. It is possible to produce explosives appropriate for rock structure by changing ANFO and Emulsion mixing rates of SOLARGEL-E. Explosives having high crushing energy for hard rock structures and having high propulsion namely gas energy for soft rock structures can be produced. SOLARGEL-E can be offered for usage by packing it with cartridges and can pumped into the holes directly via specially equipped trucks.
Areas of Usage
- In every kind of metal and coal mining
- In cement and lime factories and raw material mines
- In dam and road works and in any kind of railroad constructions
- In quarries
- In channel blasting
- In any kind of specific blasting designs
- Provide a better fragmentation thanks to its high blasting speed.
- Low post blasting fumes.
- Excellent water resistance
- Easy handling and loading of holes.
For better base shearing, fragmenting and shifting it is recommended to use SOLARGEL-E also as downhole load.
SOLARGEL-E is not cap sensitive explosive. Cap sensitive explosive is absolutely needed for detonation. Our company recommends our SUPERPOWER 90 products as booster for detonation of SOLARGEL-E.
