Optimal rock fragmentation

Watch this film to see a blast performed with Yara's Technical Nitrates

With our technical nitrates, whether it be Ammonium Nitrate or Calcium Nitrate you will achieve a way of blasting with civil explosives that provides optimal fragmentation. 

  • You know you can rely on products that are easy to handle and offer a high degree of safety with outstanding performance and low cost per energy unit.
  • By adding ANFO to emulsion, the blasting performance increases and the sensitivity of the emulsion improves. 

With our products you will have an improved rock fragmentation, that avoids secondary blasting in the mine. 

Our tests show the velocity of the fragmentation is increased by using Yara Technical Nitrates. 

Our ANFO for instance comes with a good absorption of the oil enabling you to gain a better oxygen balance, which means greater energy release and a bigger blast with your civil explosives. 

The porosity of the product also ensures its homogeneity down the hole – this results in a very good blasting with a similar size of rock.
