Subtek is manufactured at the blast site from an Orica designed underground pumping unit. This combines non-explosive emulsion with sensitiser to deliver the water resistant explosive product into the blasthole. Subtek is suitable for use in downholes, upholes and development headings. The final density of the product can be varied to suit ground conditions and blast design. It is not suitable for use in reactive ground. Maximum charge lengths are density and application specific; please contact your Orica Technical Representative for advice. Incorrect application of this product may result in elevated levels of undesirable post blast fume or poor blast outcomes.
