Powergel Magnum is a water resistant packaged explosive designed for priming applications in mining, construction and general blasting work (especially at surface blasting applications)
The new formulation Powergel Magnum which has been used by EU Countries and USA since early 2000s, is the high power cap sensitive emulsion explosive.
Powergel Magnum provides rock crushing with its superior impact and heave performance. Additionally, the fumes after blasting creates heave energy. Powergel Magnum can be used instead of dynamite especially at surface blastings.
HIGH SAFETY FEATURES
Besides its high performance capabilities Powergel Magnum has the highest safety features. It is very safe against initiation by friction and impact. Also, it has a very high water resistance.
Powergel Magnum should be initiated by No.8* detonators. Initiating by detonating cord (minimum 10 g PETN/m), cartridge and cord should have an intimate contact. It should not be initiated under -15 o C.
Powergel Magnum has a storage life up to 12 months in approved magazines.
Technical Properties given, are the ideal values. The velocity of detonation depends on cartridge diameter and cartridge confinement (confined or unconfined). The detonation pressure and heat is a function of velocity of detonation.
Powergel Magnum are supplied in 20kg flexible sleeve durable packages.
