Ammonium Nitrate - Blasting Grade Porous Prill for ANFO Mixing and Watergels
Ammonium Nitrate is one of the most popular and economically-priced blasting chemicals available to the mining industry. Kemcore supplies ammonium nitrate porous prills that are ready to absorb more than 8% oil. This highly-porous explosive grade ammonium nitrate mixes into a uniform ANFO on site and offers enhanced flowability and handling.
Explosive Grade AN Porous Prills for Civil Explosives
Specifically designed for mining and blasting industry use
Create uniform ANFO when mixed with fuel
Non-caking formula with low moisture content agglomerates easily and won’t set
Low particle density promotes even absorption of fuel for improved detonation
Good friability, low clay content, and non-caking consistency ensure consistent results
Ideal prill size distribution for blasting (6-20 mesh)
Lightly-Coated Ammonium Nitrate Prills
The AN-PP Kemcore supplies is ideal for civil engineering and explosives manufacture as well as open cut coal and metal, underground, and quarry mining. Kemcore’s Ammonium Nitrate is specifically designed to be used as an emulsion explosive base in ANFO, WR ANFO, Heavy ANFO emulsion, and watergels.
Very stable in emulsion mixtures, our AN-PP is free-flowing, non-caking, and easy to agglomerate, but won’t set. With ammonium nitrate content of greater than 99% and a high oil absorption rate, our porous prills create superior detonations. They also offer excellent resistance to friability and high compressive strength.
Are You Spending Too Much on Blasting Chemicals?
Explosives are among the top 15 expense items for many mining companies. Ammonium nitrate is one of the most expensive chemical components of emulsion-based bulk explosives and if it’s blocky, lumps, and cakes, you’re in trouble. Our AN-PP is lightly coated with an anticaking agent to prevent it from caking, thermocycling, collecting dust, or gathering moisture through condensation.
You can’t afford blocked pump hoses and you shouldn’t have to pay more to get reliably high-quality ammonium nitrate PP. That’s why Kemcore negotiates with multiple, reliable and ISO-certified Chinese suppliers for you. We only work with reliable suppliers who use French KT patented technology and we regularly inspect supplier facilities to make certain the end product meets our standards, is non-caking, readily absorbent, and flows freely.
Our careful selection and inspection process guarantees that you obtain the highest quality and purity ammonium nitrate porous prills for the best price. Kemcore’s end-to-end logistics delivers the mining chemicals you need directly to your site. On-time delivery, consistent quality, and reliable suppliers make Kemcore’s AN-PP the choice of companies in more than 30 mining regions around the globe.
Store material in a well ventilated magazine suitably licensed for Class 1.1D Explosives. Store in a cool, dry, well ventilated place and out of direct sunlight. Store away from sources of heat or ignition. Store away from incompatible materials. Store away from strong acids, strong alkalis, nitrites, chlorates, chlorides and permanganates. Ammonium Nitrate is incompatible with, and must be stored away from, tetranitromethane, dichloroisocyanuric acid, trichloroisocyanuric acid, any bromate, chlorate, chlorite, hypochlorite or chloroisocyanurate or any inorganic nitrite. Keep containers closed when not in use - check regularly for spills.

Ammonium nitrate is quite soluble in water (250 g/100 ml at 20 deg C). Thus, if precipitation occurs prior to clean up, or if water is used to disperse the spilled chemical, the solution of ammonium nitrate produced can infiltrate the soil and migrate downward.

previous loads from last PPAN we imported from China was blocky and we stopped importing at that time. We run emulsion pump trucks so we cannot afford to have lumps in the prilled ammonium nitrate because it will block up our pump hoses. Best quality from Kemcore so far.
