MAXAM develops improved cartridge explosives offering

Published by , Editorial Assistant
Global Mining Review,

MAXAM, a global technology company specialising in energy materials and blasting solutions, has shown its new cartridge explosives offering within the framework of the Mining and Minerals Hall held in Seville, Spain.

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 more robust and functional packages. In this way, the loading speed of the explosive in the borehole is increased, consequently improving the current high standards of RIODIN in terms of performance and safety in handling the product.

On the other hand, the company has taken advantage of the MMH framework to advance the development of what will be the new generation of cartridge explosives: RIOTECH, a highly energetic product with a completely new formulation specifically designed to provide better fragmentation. RIOTECH is under development and will be launched in Spain soon.

For Antonio Vidal, the company’s General Manager 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.”
