Explosive Chubs Made with Valéron® Strength Film
Valéron® film is used in high impact resistant explosive cartridges for form, fill and seal (FFS) packaging of emulsion or water gel explosives. Valéron® provides low elongation that assists in the filling and production of emulsion explosives at high fill temps without creating a baggy film on the finished chub. It also provides excellent resistance to tear which protects the cartridge from puncture during installation in a bore hole.
Because of Valéron® films unparalleled strength, puncture, tear and tear propagation resistance in combination with high dimensional stability we are able to stand up to the rigors of government and military applications.
Valéron® films are cross-laminated multi-layer structures offering a thin, flexible film with more balanced strength than any other substrate. This allows you to do more with less.
Valéron® film offers:
High thermal stability: Valéron® films allow high filling temperatures up to 200°F. This provides a wide temperature filling range, making Valéron® the ideal material to pack explosive gels and hot filled emulsions.
Weather resistance: Valéron® is a high weather resistant material that will protect the packed product from deteriorating. The quality of Valéron® keeps your product from harm during storage and transport.
Waterproof and chemical resistant: Valéron® is a barrier against water and a wide range of chemicals. The closed structure (non porous, high barrier) of Valéron® creates the ideal material in which your explosives are securely packed.
Minimal elephant footing: Valéron® films outperform other films on site. It drastically reduces chub or cartridge distortions when dropped down the borehole.
