X-BOOSTER Booster for Blasting Agents
The X-BOOSTER Cylindrical range are explosive charges of high power and
high safety, intended for the initiation of blasting agents. Its plastic container
protects the explosive mixture it contains, allowing it to be more insensitive
to impact or rubbing, as well as a greater resistance to the attack of water
present in some perforations. It also includes the Safelock ® accessory that
aims at a standard and safe priming, housing the crimper of the detonator
inside the booster in a single position.
