General Specifications of Underground Bulk Emulsions
Underground bulk emulsion explosives consist of a base emulsion and sensitiser, which are classified as non-detonable and non-explosive, respectively.
The base emulsion is a honey coloured mixture of two immiscible liquids and an emulsifier. The sensitiser is an aqueous or emulsified liquid, which, when added to the base emulsion and mixed, creates an explosive in the blast-hole.
