It has a TITAN®emulsion matrix content in addition to the ammonium nitrate, polystyrene beads and fuel oil components.
The SANFOLD range of products provides a range of explosive strengths for applications that require lower strength explosives such as in perimeter blasting.
The lower energy of SANFOLD combined with its excellent charge distribution ensures that vibration is minimised, wall control maintained whilst still achieving good fragmentation.
- The TITAN emulsion in the formulation binds the ANFO and polystyrene together making the product ideal for use in inclined holes where segregation could occur whilst the sticky nature of the product keeps the explosive in the blasthole.
- SANFOLD is therefore particularly suited to perimeter blasting in uphole stopes, with the different blends allowing the explosive properties tobe matched with the particular geology.
- As SANFOLD contains TITAN emulsion it has an increase in water resistance over both ANFO and ANFO PS blends.
