Application areas:
Used for explosive works in open-cut mines and mines that are not dangerous in terms of gases or dust with manual and mechanical loading of dry and wet (dewatered) holes, bore holes and sockets. Grammonite 79/21 differs from powder explosives due to susceptibility to mechanical effect, absence of dusting, convent use and safe operation.
