TOVEX IS SAFER:

Tovex contains no nitroglycerin. Dynamite is made with nitroglycerin. This is big safety difference. Since its introduction more than 4 billion pounds of Tovex have been shipped, handled and used without an accidental detonation attributable to Tovex.

Tovex is reliably sensitive to conventional priming method yet much more resistant than Dynamite to accidental intimation from impact, shock or fire. Every standard industries test proves it. Because Tovex is so outstanding in safety and performance. Dupont stopped making Dynamite in 1977.

TOVEX SAFETY MEANS GREATER PRODUCTIVITY:

With the switch to Tovex, users have improved morale and increased productivity on each shift as nitroglycerin headaches disappeared.

TOVEX INCREASED PRE-BLAST SAFETY:

Tovex resists accidental detonation from impact friction and fire far better than Dynamite. So hazards posed in shipping, handling and storage are greatly reduced.

TOVEX PERFORMS:

Tovex is a class 3 division I explosive with good balance of energy, density, velocity, sensitivity and water resistance. Tovex comes in diameters down to 7/8” for a full range of explosives operations. Its tampable can be loaded into rough, ragged holes, and offers excellent shelf life.

TOVEX MINIMIZES PROPAGATION:

Since Dynamite is much more sensitive than Tovex, propagation between holes can occur, disrupting delay sequences causing more vibration and fly rock. Tovex is formulated to minimize hole-to-hole propagation making it ideal to use when tough shooting condition exist.

TOVEX ELIMINATES NITRO HEADACHES:

Unlike Dynamite, Tovex water gel explosive contain no nitroglycerin so there’s no way you can get nitro headache from either handling Tovex or breathing fumes after blasting. A miner once described a nitroglycerin headache as “five time worse than worst headache as “five time worse than headache I ever had. Worker with nitro headaches just can’t be productive.

TOVEX REDUCE SMOKE AND FUMES:

Smoke and fumes after a blast contain Tovex carbon monoxide of nitrogen. The amount of Tovex fumes and smoke generates with less Tovex then with dynamite .operators find with Tovex productivity increased, since the men can return to work more quickly and safely than with Dynamite.

TOVEX CAN SAVE MONEY:

In all type of explosive operation Tovex is providing .it can save money by reduce drilling and blasting costs. Shortening work cycles and improving productivity over Dynamite.

More efficient hole spacing reduced the cost of blasting in quarries .In coal mines the loader can work all the way to the back of the cut when shot with Tovex,but not when shot with Dynamite .in tunnel operation ,with tovex virtually no fumes allowing for almost immediate mucking operation with no significant delay in the work cycle.

The precision drilling and smooth blasting that are possible with Tovex reduced the overhead .eliminated unwanted slides helps time saving and planning without interrupting traffic. Tovex is less dense than Dynamite; you can Shoot More Sticks per pounds of explosive.
