Explosive Emulsifiers

Demand your explosion emulsifiers deliver the high performance you expect and the reliability you require

You need the highest degree of confidence in the blast success. That requires reliable emulsions with long-term stability against thermal and mechanical stress as well as constant cap sensitivity. You need the power of a global company that can deliver what you need, where you need it and when you need it.​

Clariant Mining has many years of experience in modern emulsifier technology. We have proven ourselves to be a reliable partner for the blasting industry by producing unique, high quality products and delivering them, on time, around the world.

  • Improve your operations with a better PIBSA product

    Clariant Mining produces emulsifiers that are derived from PIBSA that is specifically engineered and manufactured for explosives so you receive a far better product than what is currently available in the market. We use “high reactive” PIB raw materials instead of the conventional “low reactive” PIB to deliver even higher performance.

    Our custom PIBSA manufacturing process produces a chlorine-free emulsion with high activity and less by-products. Eliminating the chlorine process eliminates the by-products normally produced in the chlorine process that can poison ANFO emulsions.

    The Clariant custom manufacturing process creates PIBSA products that:

    • Have higher activity requiring lower dosage rates
    • Have superior emulsion stability
    • Can achieve longer sleep times
    • Are more water resistant
    • Have greater shear stability

    Our extensive experience allows us to help you get the best PIBSA products for your specific needs, and Clariant’s worldwide distribution network allows us to deliver our superior products to you when you need them.

  • Stabilize your packaged and bulk explosives with sorbitan ester

    Sorbitan Ester-based explosives emulsifiers exhibit the following positive characteristics:

    • Produces highly stable emulsions
    • Excellent compatibility with a wide range of waxes and fuels used in packaged explosives allows it to be used as a co-emulsifier in bulk explosives
    • Very cost-efficient emulsifiers give rapid viscosity development
    • Ideal co-emulsifier in bulk explosives when a rapid gassing rate is required
    • Allow emulsions to be produced under relatively low shear conditions

    Chemical gassing has stronger options that are more suitable than Sorbitan Ester-based explosives emulsifiers.

    Let our experts work with you to find the best product for your explosives needs. Our worldwide distribution centers allow us to deliver what you need when you need it.

  • Simplify your operations with high-quality pre-blended fuel phase

    Clariant Mining offers the products and expertise to meet your specific needs for both bulk fuel phase and packaged explosives fuel phase. We can jointly develop your unique blends under secrecy and exclusivity agreement.

    Bulk Fuel Phase

    • Kerosene
    • Process Oil
    • Recycled Oil
    • Methyl Esters
    • PIBSA-based Emulsifiers
    • Sorbitan Ester-based Emulsifiers

    Packaged Explosives Fuel Phase

    Let us streamline your operations by providing superior pre-blended fuel phase to mix with oxidizer phase for packaged explosives. Clariant supplies the complete fuel phase for packaged explosives and can blend the following waxes and fuels with emulsifiers:

    • Paraffin Waxes
    • Microcrystalline Waxes
    • Process Oil
    • Recycled Oil
    • PIBSA-based Emulsifiers
