For specialist blasting, EPC-UK can provide a suitable grade of black powder that can produce effective blasted rock.
Black powder is a low order explosive. It is sensitive to accidental
initiation by flame, spark or friction. When initiated it burns at a
rapid rate. This rapid burning is called deflagration. The speed of
reaction is much slower than high explosives.
Black powder can be used in dimension stone blasting where a minimum amount of shattering is required.
Different grades of black powder can be made available on request.
Black Powder classification is UN 0027 and hazard class / compatibility is 1.1D.
