Subtek™ Eclipse™ is a chemically sensitised, inhibited emulsion explosive used predominantly in underground production Blasting where ground is classified as mildly reactive. Subtek™ Eclipse™ is specifically designed for use in upholes, and is also suitable for downholes and development headings.
Subtek™ Eclipse™ is manufactured at the blast site from an Orica designed underground pumping unit. This combines non-explosive emulsion with sensitiser to deliver the water resistant explosive product into the blasthole. The density of the final product can be varied to suit ground conditions or blast design.
