Product Description

INNOVEX 100 is a bulk pumped booster-sensitive gassed emulsion. INNOVEX 100 is a dual salt emulsion formulated with reprocessed oil and alternative fuels.

INNOVEX 100 System


INNOVEX 100 is designed for blasting applications in open pit mines, quarries, and construction with wet or dry holes. It is not for use in the presence of unprotected sulphide reactive ground or in elevated ground temperatures.

Primary Benefits

INNOVEX 100 may be loaded at varying densities to achieve energies that optimize fragmentation distribution and influence mine to mill productivity. The INNOVEX 100 dual salt formulation is a product demonstrated to generate very low levels of post blast NOx fume. The use of reprocessed oil in the fuel phase can contribute towards sustainability goals.

Velocity of Detonation, Relative Weight and Bulk Strengths calculated using the IPX code for average in-hole densities and a cut-off pressure of 100 MPa relative to ANFO at a density of 0.80 g/cm³. Actual in field velocity of detonation will vary and is dependent on hole diameter and confinement. Bulk and Volumetric Energies measurements made by underwater bubble energy tests at UTEC labs.

Guidelines for Use

  • INNOVEX 100 is compatible with most non-electric and electronic detonator systems.
  • Use of detonating cord with INNOVEX 100 may influence blast outcomes.

Blasthole Charge Length, Hole Diameter, and Density Relationships

Maximum hole depth depends on product selection, hole diameter, product densities, critical void space and the presence of water. Please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance and site specific calculations using BME’s DensDepth program.

Ground Temperature

This product may be used in ground temperatures from 0° to a maximum of +70°C. If the application requires use outside this temperature range please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance.

Reactive Ground

This product is not formulated for use in reactive ground. Reactive ground is typically characterised by the presence of sulphide mineralization. If the application requires use in known reactive ground, or in untested sulphide bearing ground, please contact a BME Technical Representative for additional guidance.


The recommended maximum sleep time is 21 days. Sleep time is dependent on factors such as hole diameter, density, ground water conditions and initiation system. If the application requires longer in-hole sleep time, please consult with a BME Technical Representative for guidance.

Storage Life

The storage life for INNOVEX 100 base emulsion is typically up to 6 months under good storage conditions. Please consult with a BME Technical Representative for site specific storage life guidance.

Safe Use

  • Never fight explosive fires.
  • Refer to Safety Data Sheet (SDS) for first aid.
  • All explosives must be transported and stored in accordance to relevant regulations.
