DETONATING CORD

DETONATING CORD
Detonating Cord is used primarily for initiating commercial explosives. It is a flexible cord with a core containing PETN and
explosives. When Detonating Cord is initiated with a blasting cap, it detonates along its entire length at a velocity of 6300-7500
metres/sec (20,665-24,600 feet/sec) depending on the charge weight of its explosive core. The center of Detonating Cords
includes the explosives PETN encapsulated in a polypropylene tape, and fibrillated polypropylene yarn countering. The protective
covering over the countering yarn enables our detonating cord to be used in various conditions encountered
in the field while using commercial explosives. The construction makes the product user friendly. It also provides qualities
required to meet physical conditions viz., tensile strength, flexibility, resistance to abrasion and extremes of heat and cold, water
and oil penetration.
