EPC-UK supply Explus TSR primers in 50mm and 35mm diameter cartridges. This explosive is suitable for use as a primer for initiating Ammonium Nitrate based explosives in shallow large diameter holes as experienced in opencast coal sites.

Packaged emulsions contain water in oil compositions, i.e. where the water solution of oxidisers is dispersed evenly between the oil phase. A surfactant (emulsifier) is used to ensure that the oxidiser remains dispersed in the fuel. A density reducing agent is added to make the product detonator sensitive.

As a result of the intimate blend of the oxidiser and fuel and the fine particle size, emulsions have a relatively high velocity of detonation in comparison to other products. These products have excellent water resistant properties.
