HIGH PURITY HYDROCARBON FLUIDS FOR AMMONIUM NITRATE EXPLOSIVES (ANFO)
TOTAL has developed a range of hydrocarbon fluids for Ammonium Nitrate Explosives (ANFO and emulsions), called BLASTANE.
Compared to other hydrocarbon fluids (oils, fuel oils, kerosene), the BLASTANE range offers several benefits:
Human health and environment:
- ANFO formulations are odorless
- BLASTANE products are classified as “readily biodegradable” according to OECD 301B or OECD 306.
- High purity products with a very low aromatics content (<0,03%) and benzene (<1ppm).
- Not classified CMR (Carcinogenic, Mutagène, Reprotoxique) according to the international system of classification of labeling and packaging of chemicals (GHS) and the regulation CLP in Europe (1272 / 2008 / EC).
- Easy to emulsify
- Excellent stabiliy of emulsion
- Broad viscosity range available
