There are basically three types of Explosives:-
1. Special Gelatine or Dynamite
2. Slurries or Water-gel
Special Gelatine is banned in Nigeria for safety and security reasons. Slurries have their advantages but Emulsion explosives are the latest generation explosives that when properly initiated, gives as much or more power than Dynamite but safe to handle. We market Slurries and Emulsions manufactured by our technical Partners, Solar Industries India Limited. We also import and market some specialty brands and blasting accessories and machines from Europe and the United States of America.
