MAXAM sets out to improve cartridge explosives offering

MAXAM says it has consolidated its commitment to innovation with the development of an improved cartridge explosives offering.

The global technology company specialising in energy materials and blasting solutions made the announcement at the Mining and Minerals Hall held in Seville, Spain, from October 15-17, 2019.

MAXAM said: “With the aim of responding and adapting to increasingly demanding environments, the company has complemented the high performance of its dynamite, RIODIN, thanks to the introduction of new screw-in/attachable rods, more robust and functional packages.”

This will increase the loading speed of the explosive in the borehole, consequently improving the performance and safety associated with handling the RIODIN product, it said.

In addition to this, MAXAM has taken advantage of the MMH event to announce the development of what will be the new generation of cartridge explosives: RIOTECH. This highly energetic product, currently under development with a launch in Spain soon expected, comes with a completely new formulation specifically designed to provide better fragmentation, it said.

For Antonio Vidal, General Manager MAXAM in Spain, “both product lines reinforce the portfolio of MAXAM’s unique solutions as well as loading units. At MAXAM we develop customised solutions that respond to the needs of the market with a clear goal: to optimise the operations of our customers in any segment and condition.”
