AUTOSTEM PYROTECHNIC

SAFE DEMOLITION WITH NO VIBRATIONS OR SHOCKWAVE

Building demolition can be safely conducted using the AutoStem (Generation 1) Cartridge. The Cartridge offers the advantage of being user-friendly in built-up areas and is effective in the safe bringing down of multiple story buildings. Without generating a shockwave, AutoStem Cartridges can be used in nearby vicinities of windows and sensitive structures without causing any damage.

AN ENVIRONMENTALLY RESPONSIBLE SOLUTION

TO UNDERWATER BLASTING

AutoStem (Generation 1) Cartridge is also waterproof, meaning under water blasting can be done up to a depth of 10m, making AutoStem the safest and least environmentally impactful product available today. No harm to sea life, immediate diver re-entry and no clearing area or port down - time required.

LOW VIBRATION, MORE CONTROL
