In tandem with our comprehensive range of blasting services, EPC-UK offers a single-source solution to meet the needs of customers requiring commercial explosives, blasting accessories and technical services.
With a focus on safety and innovation, we specialise in:
- Production of bulk and packaged explosives
- Sales, distribution and technical support
- Downstream services, which include drilling and blasting services, training, assessing and blasting consultancy.
We supply bulk emulsion explosives through our Multiblend brand, the UK’s most extensive system for delivering explosives directly into shot holes in locations in quarries and opencast coal mines – or even, with a specialist system, underground.
By operating blend trucks and servicing contract requirements, we ensure a safe, efficient system in which components are transported to the blast site in a non-explosive form and mixed on-site by specialist operatives to meet the precise formulation needs of each site.
Our range of vehicle options has been carefully developed to ensure delivery even to previously inaccessible sites such as off-road or rough terrain.
Achieving 100% coupling and a high loading density, our customers benefit from expanded drilling patterns, meaning reduced drilling costs and greater control over vibration and environmental disturbance.
Depending on your requirements, we also provide a number of alternative options:
- EXEM emulsion cartridge explosives
- Permitted explosives
- Nitroglycerine explosives
- ANFO explosives
- Black powder
These are complemented by emulsion primers or cast primers and boosters in various sizes, helping to initiate higher velocity blasting.
Explosives are only as good as the equipment that accompanies them, and EPC-UK is committed to providing only the best, with a comprehensive range of blasting accessories.
Detonators include the Euronel high strength detonator system, ideal for surface blasting or – with long delay tunnel detonators – underground and demolition blasting. We also offer electronic and electric detonator options.
We supply several sizes of detonating cords sourced in Europe, as well as shotfiring cable and connecting wire.
Other accessories include: seismographs; exploders; ohmmeters; plystem clay stemming material; stemming rods; shotfirer’s tapes; and hand tools.
We are able to offer storage of class 1 products in our fully alarmed bespoke Magazines facilities at Rough Close works and Bramble Island.
