Hydromite 70 AL is a booster sensitive bulk emulsion made from a mixture of 70% of Hydrox S with 30% low density ammonium nitrate porous prill, fuel oil and Aluminium. The added Aluminium increases the enery of this emulsion explosive. This emulsion is sensitized by chemical gassing. Hydromite 70 AL is widely used in surface mining, quarrying and construction work. As Hydromite 70 AL is not cap sensitive, it can be initiated by a suitable sized cartridge of Emulex 1 or APB.
