PRILLEX

PRILLEX is a prilled form explosive (or dry blasting agent) which is composed of Ammonium Nitrate and Fuel Oil (ANFO). PRILLEX is a blasting agent and therefore not cap-sensitive. PRILLEX is most suitable in middle and large diameter blastholes under dry conditions.

PRILLEX should not be used in damp or wet blastholes as it deteriorates rapidly under such conditions. For reliable initiation, a primer cartridge of a high explosive (KEMULEX or PRIMEX) must be used to reinforce the effect of the detonator.

Applications

- General purpose blasting in all type of rock formations under dry conditions.

Advantages

- Safe as it requires a primer ( KEMULEX or PRIMEX) to initiate.
- Easy to handle and load into holes.
- Economical for its low cost and efficient performance.
- Adaptable to bulk trucks : Can come in 400 & 800 Kg bags.
