Innovex RG is a bulk pumped booster-sensitive gassed emulsion. Innovex RG is a dual salt emulsion formulated with reprocessed oil and alternative fuels, plus additional inhibiting salts and agents to retard exothermic reaction in sulphide bearing ground.
Innovex RG is designed for blasting applications in open pit mines, quarries, and construction with wet or dry holes. It is specifically formulated for use in the presence of sulphide reactive ground.
The Innovex RG multiple salt formulation, in conjunction with other qualified initiation products and site specific procedures, form a system proven to be safe and reliable for blasting in sulphide reactive ground. Innovex RG may also be qualified for use in ground with elevated temperatures on a site specific basis. Innovex RG is a product demonstrated to generate very low levels of post blast NOx fume.

Velocity of Detonation, Relative Weight and Bulk Strengths calculated using the IPX code at a density of 1.20 g/cm³ and a cut-off pressure of 100 MPa relative to ANFO at a density of 0.80 g/cm³.
Actual in field velocity of detonation will vary and is dependent on hole diameter and confinement.

Innovex RG is compatible with most non-electric and electronic detonator systems.
Consult with a BME Technical Specialist for application of Innovex RG with compatible priming and initiation products in the ground conditions characterized by elevated heat above 70°C.
Maximum hole depth depends on product selection, hole diameter, product densities, critical void space and the presence of water. Please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance and site specific calculations using BME’s DensDepth program.
This product may be used in ground temperatures from 0° to a maximum of 70°C. If the application requires use outside this temperature range please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance.
This product is specifically formulated for use in reactive ground. Reactive ground is typically characterised by the presence of sulphide mineralization. If the application requires use in known reactive ground, or in untested sulphide bearing ground, please contact a BME Technical Specialist for additional guidance.
The safe loading window and in hole sleep time for Innovex RG is site specific. The site specific sleep time is determined by isothermal reactive ground testing at a BME laboratory. It is also dependent on factors such as hole diameter, density, ground water conditions and initiation system. Please consult with a BME Technical Representative for guidance.
