Pressed boosters based on explosive compositions

Pressed boosters based on explosive compositions

Boosters are produced in a cylinder or cuboid shape and depending on type – covered with paper and plastic or according to customer’s requirement. With the order placing it is necessary to specify number and depth of the holes for a fuse as well as external dimensions.

apart from the data listed in the chart, there is a possibility to make pressed boosters with other explosive compositions based on Hexogen or Octogen according to customer’s requirements

Boosters are packed into polyethylene bags in cardboard boxes protected with adhesive tape. Free space inside a box is filled with corrugated board. All types of packages have got the UN mark and meet the requirements of RID, ADR and IMDG transport regulations.
