After many years of research and development, we launched the world's range of first non-detonating blasting cartridges in 2013, and multiple additional generations over the past 10 years.
Redefining the way
blasting is done
We set out to decouple the previously thought to be intrinsically linked variables, power and velocity of detonation ("VOD") and by decoupling those variables, we have been able to develop a product that functions like a conventional explosive in terms of breaking power, but without the shock implications of high VOD.
Safety has always been our driving agenda, and our AutoStem is also the only blasting cartridge which requires no accessories, no charging up and/or stemming action.
Our Journey So Far
AutoStem Generation 1 IS introduced
We pioneered the world's first non-detonating self-stemming range of cartridges in the AutoStem generation 1 in a 32mm range of products in power sizes from 20g - 100g.
We introduced the AutoStem Generation 2 range in a dedicated 43mm diameter and in power charges up to 300g. AutoStem 2 was also the world's first dual-stemming product, which would function in hang-ups & through-holes
