DAYAGEL MAGNUM

DAYAGEL MAGNUM

DAYAGEL MAGNUM is an especially high strength and robust detonator sensitive emulsion explosive. The product is gray in
colors with a frim putty-like consistency.
Applications

DAYAGEL MAGNUM is a water resistant packaged explosive
designed to deliver high energy in both priming applications
and as a relatively high density column explosives in mining,
quarrying and general blasting work. Small diameter cartridges
of DAYAGEL MAGNUM are packed in films which readily split
during tamping to maximize coupling and bulk strength within
the blast holes. Intermediate diameter cartridges are packaged
in film which resist tearing and maintains the dimensional
stability of the cartridge to ensure it remains intact for rising out
of water. Alternatively the packaging can be slit where slumping
require the maximum coupling and bulk strength within the
blast hole. DAYAGEL MAGNUM is highly water resistant and will
detonate reliably under heads of water up to 150 m, making this
explosive suitable for most underwater blasting applications.

*The “Relative Effective Energy” (REE) of an explosive is the energy
calculated to do effective blasting work.
