producto exsa

Is a blasting agent of great versatility, specially designed to deploy a high level of energy and a large volume of gas, thus achieving excellent rock fragmentation. With its low sensitivity and excellent performance in breaking and displacing rock, it is ideal for quarries and civil works.

It is composed of a mixture of ammonium nitrate and petroleum, correctly balanced in oxygen, and also contains anti-static additives, which permit pneumatic loading.

  • Recommended for use in dry holes that will remain dry until detonation.
  • Preferred use is in well-ventilated places.
  • Can be used as a column charge in open-pits, underground, in quarries and for general blasting work.
  • It is not suitable for reactive environments.
