Bulk emulsions

BME is the market leader in emulsions and bulk explosives into Africa. BME was the first explosives company to introduce cold emulsions into South African opencast mines. Consequently, our HEF brand of bulk explosives has become synonymous with high quality and reliability.

 

  • HEF 100

    HEF 100 is a booster sensitive Bulk Emulsion Explosive designed for opencast mines. HEF 100 is a low viscosity black emulsion specially formulated using re-cycled oil/alternative fuel. It is sensitised to a cup density of 0.9 – 1.2 g/cm3 by using a suitable sensitising agent. HEF 60 and HEF 70 are derivatives of HEF100 specifically for use in BME’s blended emulsions (HEF 206 and HEF). HEF 100 formulations are available for reactive ground conditions.
