Prillex® is an industrial grade ammonium nitrate prill used as a solid oxidizer or blended with fuel.
Prillex® is an industrial grade ammonium nitrate product that is specifically designed to be used as a solid oxidizer ingredient for explosive compositions such as ANFO, Heavy ANFOs, or pumped blends. The ammonium nitrate prills are small, low density and moisture, non-setting, porous spheres. The particle density of the prill is such that, when fuel is properly applied and mixed, the prill absorbs the fuel uniformly; this enhances the mixture’s effectiveness. Since ammonium nitrate is highly soluble in water, the addition of Emultex®, can improve its water resistance for prolonged sleep times.
