EXEM emulsion cartridges manufactured by EPC Groupe in Europe are water in oil emulsions, that is, oxidiser salts dispersed as microscopically fine droplets, surrounded by a continuous fuel phase.

The emulsion is stabilised against liquid separation by an emulsifier (or surfactant). A density modifying agent is added to provide sensitivity. Using the groupes advanced Emulsion technology Exem is suitable for a wide range of applications across surface mining and quarrying operations.

The product provides the optimum combination of safety, efficiency reliability and consistency and is available in a range of cartridge sizes.

Key Features;

  • High water resistance
  • High Velocity of Detonation
  • Good oxygen balance with low post blast fumes
  • Good handling characteristics
  • Available in two compositions (Exem 55 & Exem 100)

EPC-UK recommends the use of a booster
for safe and efficient priming when firing
these compositions.

Other cartridge diameters are available upon request.
