Commercial enquiries:


Bulk emulsions are an emulsified Ammonium Nitrate solution incorporating a fuel phase. Classified as an oxidizing agent for transportation purposes the composition does not become explosive until mixed with gassing agents and sensitized at the point of delivery to the borehole.

EPC-UK supplies the Blendex range, a pumpable high energy chemically sensitised bulk emulsion explosive manufactured in the UK. The Blendex range is specifically designed for large scale quarrying, mining and civil engineering blasting works. The waterproof product is mixed on site by bespoke Multiblend trucks and suitable for use in both wet and dry holes. Blendex is available in a range of compositions incorporating various quantities of undissolved ammonium nitrate dependent on specific energy and heave requirements of the customer.
