RIOFLEX hydrogel is specifically formulated to offer the highest energy and flexibility. The high energy potential stems from its low water content and wide density range over other explosive products.
With an achievable minimum density of 0.9 grams per cubic centimetre (g/cc) and a maximum in-hole density of 1.38g/cc, significant savings through blast optimisation are achieved at customer sites.
The RIOFLEX range can be doped with ANFO to enhance heave characteristics and heavy ANFOs of up to 70 per cent can be sensitised to adjust density, optimise performance and reduce cost.
Further, the unique water-based fuel of RIOFLEX imparts inhibiting qualities that make RIOFLEX and RIOFLEX blends suitable for use in reactive ground (subject to testing based on the AEISG code).
