Use of blackpowder and other similar materials in the dimensional stone and granite industries is still one of the most widely used methods for blasting rock. GasBlaster allows work to be undertaken without the need for explosives licenses or complicated and less administratively heavy “Track and Trace”. The GasBlaster Range also negates the need for expensive and significant storage facilities at each site. it’s a real win for your business.
Over-break and generation of micro-cracks can be avoided as the products are not fully coupled to the drill-hole
Discolouration of the stone can be minimised, whilst achieving straight cuts through the stone
Some measure of protection from moisture ingress into the ‘explosives’ medium is obtained thus avoiding poor results from under-performing materials such as blackpowder. Gasblaster is also water resistant for a minimum of 1.5 hours.
Use of a ‘self stemming’ product removes the need to carry around stemming material to remote areas
Our wide range of cartridges makes the use in the field simpler from a mass requirement or blasting ratio calculation standpoint
Far quicker harvesting of the quarry than the use of just pecking, plug and feather or wedges.
