Industrial Explosives

The use of aluminum as a fuel in blasting agents such as ANFO, water gels and emulsions is considered a cost effective choice for increasing energy, rock fragmentation and the expansion of bore hole patterns. U.S. Granules has a distinguished history of customizing aluminum granule products for the reactivity, density, energy and safety requirements of the industrial explosives industry.
