Image

A high detonation pressure explosive for boosting large diameter explosives. There are 6 sizes available 100g, 150g, 175g, 250g, 400g and 500g. Our SALVO CAST BOOST is designed to such specifications so that it is compatible with both detonating cord as well as non-electric detonator.

CHARACTERISTICS

Pentolite Booster makes efficient primers and booster that detonate at a very high velocity and temperature. These qualities, together with high density produce great detonation pressure, Pentolite boosters can be stored for long periods of time, as they contain no liquid ingredients and can be operated easily without use of pickers. They are equipped with two holes for easy initiation with detonating cord or detonators. They do not contain nitroglycerin or other headache causing ingredients.

APPLICATION

Pentolite Boosters can be used for effectively initiating cap insensitive charges in a borehole at any predetermined point in a column of explosive charge.
