What are the advantages of Royex?

General Operation

- Pre-defined sequentially timed blasting patterns are possible via shock tube or electric initiators

- The Modular initiation system allows for customized timings and loading patterns

- Continuous blasting is possible

- Good fragmentation control

- Greatly increased operational and handling safety

- No explosives are present at work site

- Transportation, storage and general logistical control minimised by the product's 1.4S rating

- Air shipping allows for faster deliveries and relaxes stock requirements

- In EU, P2 classified product, no track and trace management required



- 1.4S timing solution and smoother breaking allows for greatly reduced vibration levels and precision blasting close to infrastructure

- Low compromise on traditional drilling patterns

- Timing and simplified design of shock tube connection speeds up preparation of blast

- Less fly rock - significantly lower risk for damage


- Continuous mining possibilities. Optional configurations using the timing initiation system allow for multiple decking

- Extended pit boundaries due to no vibration, no fly rock and less dust during blasting operations - prolonged pit lifetime

- Reduced fly rock

- High precision breaking for dimensional quarries, less wire sawing or downstream cutting

- Reduced safety distances for machinery and personnel

- No track and trace required

- Complete 1.4S solution - less demanding storage, transport and product

- Proven reduced dilution in gold, platinum and diamond mining

- Continuous mining possibilities

- Oxygen balanced - no noxious gases, rapid re-entry

- Slyping and secondary blasting operations can take place during shift

- Viable alternative for secondary blasting in block caving

- No crush zone around holes after blasting, thereby reducing fines and dust while improving recovery rates

- Improves hanging wall conditions thereby improving safety

- No throw leads to easier and quicker cleaning, less damage to support, no need for blasting barricades in narrow reef mining operations
