A high detonation pressure explosive for boostering large diameter explosives. There are 5 sizes available 100g, 175g, 250g, 400g, and 500g. Our Sun Penta Boost is designed to such specifications so that it is compatible with both detonating cord as well as EXEL non-electric detonators.
Pentolite Boosters make efficient primers and boosters that detonate at a very high velocity and temperature. These qualities, together with high density produce great detonation pressure. Pentolite boosters can be stored for long periods of time, as they contain no liquid ingredients and can be operated easily without use of prickers. They are equipped with two holes for easy initiation with detonating cord or detonators. They do not contain nitro – glycerin or other headache causing ingredients.
Pentolite boosters can be used for effectively initiating cap- insensitive charges in a borehole, at any predetermined point in a column of explosive charge.
