Kemiitti 810 is an emulsion explosive chemically sensitized from the emulsion matrix. The product is charged by pumping it into up-, down- and horizontal boreholes using underground emulsion charging units.
The product sensitizes into a finished explosive within 10 to 30 minutes of charging. Kemiitti 810 is suitable for all kinds of applications in underground mining, especially in those operations that require quick charging and/or good water-resistance. It is grease-like in consistency and white or yellowish in color. The raw materials for Kemiitti 810 (matrix and additive) are delivered to the customer in transport tanks or IBCs. Local regulations must be taken into consideration when using Kemiitti 810.
