Detonating Cord

Detonating Cord is a flexible exploding fuse based on a core of PETN. It is manufactured in a variety of types with different core loads. Saudi Chemical supplies detonating cords for initiation of blasts with core loads of 5 g/m and 12 g/m. Detonating Cord with 5 g/m and 12 g/m core load are excellent for initiation of surface blasting rounds. For underground blasting, 5 g/m cord is suitable for bunch initiation of SANEL LP rounds.
Detonating Cord may be initiated by a No.8 strength detonator and detonates along its entire length with a velocity of approximately 7,000 m/s.
Protection against moisture and water is assured by a watertight plastic insulation which is unaffected by temperature. Handling of Detonex is very safe and storing is like that of explosives. Detonex can be stored over a long period of time.

Applications

- Initiation of primary explosives and boosters (12 g/m core load).
- Trunkline to initiate SANEL (5 g/m core load).
- Underground bunch initiation of SANEL LP (5 g/m core load).

Advantages

- High detonation velocity of 7,000 m/s.
- Plastic insulation for excellent water and oil resistance.
- Low gas emission that eliminates the risk of dead pressing.
- Detonex can be stored with explosives and has long shelf life.
