DAYAGEL MAGNUM is an especially high strength and robust detonator sensitive emulsion explosive. The product is gray in colors with a frim putty-like consistency.
The post detonation fume characteristics of DAYAGEL MAGNUM make the product well suited to both underground and surface blasting applications but as with all explosives operators should ensure that adequate ventilation is provided prior to re-entry to the blast site.
While sensitive to initiation by a No. 8 detonator, DAYAGEL MAGNUM has a very low mechanical impact sensitivity. This impact insensitivity criterion is a very important safety feature.
If exposed to fire, DAYAGEL MAGNUM will self extinguish unless a vigorous external source of heat is applied. Whilst DAYAGEL MAGNUM does not burn easily, it should be kept clear of flame or excessive heat.
If DAYAGEL MAGNUM remnants are to be destroyed by burning, advice on the correct method should be sought from DAHANA Engineering Center located at DAHANA offices, or from the local explosives statutory authority.
DAYAGEL MAGNUM is a water resistant packaged explosive designed to deliver high energy in both priming applications and as a relatively high density column explosives in mining, quarrying and general blasting work.
Small diameter cartridges of DAYAGEL MAGNUM are packed in films which readily split during tamping to maximize coupling and bulk strength within the blast holes.
Intermediate diameter cartridges are packaged in film which resist tearing and maintains the dimensional stability of the cartridge to ensure it remains intact for rising out of water.
Alternatively the packaging can be slit where slumping require the maximum coupling and bulk strength within the blast hole. DAYAGEL MAGNUM is highly water resistant and will detonate reliably under heads of water up to 150 m, making this explosive suitable for most underwater blasting applications.
