HIGH PERFORMANCE, SELF-STEMMING, NON-DETONATING CARTRIDGES

Self-Stemming.  Safety Switch Technology.  Gen III Booster.  Auto Sequential. 

Power

AutoStem delivers twice the power than conventional high explosives so less is required.

Transportation

AutoStem does not require special vehicles with security escorts for transportation, and storage is simplified.

Manufacturing

AutoStem production processes are more simplified, greener and less expensive.

Safety

Using AutoStem does not require clearing of equipment and personnel for more than 50m and in a mining environment re-entry is immediate.

Accessories

AutoStem products do not require expensive accessories such as detonators, which also does away with the requirement for strict stock control and inventory of these products.

Storage

Shelf-life of AutoStem is years, so if not used immediately it is not wasted – explosive are months.
