Powergel 901 is a high strength, robust detonator sensitive emulsion explosive. The explosive is grey in colour with afirm putty-like consistency. It is packaged in plastic film with wire clips.
Powergel 901 is a water resistant packaged explosive designed to deliver high energy. It can be used in both priming applications and as a high density column explosive. Powergel 901 cartridges are packaged in film, which readily splits during tamping to maximize coupling and bulk strength within a blasthole.
The high resistance of Powergel 901 to dynamic desensitization makes it the preferred explosive for use in tunnelling, shaft sinking and other extreme blasting environments.
