Dunarit cast boosters are products suitable for the priming of a variety of explosives. EPC-UK can supply a wide range of cast priming solutions to suit your requirements – please contact us for more information.
Due to their high density and velocity of detonation, Dunarit boosters supplied by EPC-UK offer the best priming characteristics for use with non-detonator sensitive slurries, emulsions and bulk emulsion/ANFO blends. The composition of Dunarit boosters supplied is extremely stable and provides consistent, reliable results.
The velocity of detonation is in excess of 7000m/s, resulting in a high pressure of detonation.
This enables the product to be used in the most arduous of conditions encountered in quarries or surface mines. The Dunarit D6 booster has 2 detonator pockets each fitted with a detonator retention gromit. Further detonator security is provided through the application of a booster cap. Initiation can be achieved using a No 8 strength detonator or by 12g/metre detonating cord.
Dunarit boosters are available in boxes of 5, 10 or 48.
EPC-UK can provide cast primers in a wide range of weights and sizes, contact firstname.lastname@example.org for further details.
