Booster: Pentex™ 25  

Subscribe to all products in this area

Pentex 25 is a NG-free, small-hole booster. It is intended mainly for use in tunnel rounds, since it is suitable for use with modern charging equipment using Exan™ or bulk emulsions such as Subtek™ and Civec™.

Pentex 25 consists of a plastic shell filled with a PETN - based plastic explosive. The PETN (pentaerythritol tetranitrate) gives the product more energy and a higher and more even detonation velocity compared with conventional dynamites. Since Pentex 25 does not contain nitroglycerin, it does not cause the headaches associated with the handling of NG products, especially on skin contact.

Pentex 25  makes charging work easier, for it contributes to quick and
efficient handling. The detonator is inserted into the primer quickly and easily. The primer cartridge is then inserted into the charging hose to be deposited at the bottom of the hole during the actual charging sequence.

Key benefits:

·      Very high detonation rate

·      Very high density

·      Safe and simple handling

·      No additional tool necessary
