Henamex is a trade name of an explosive based on ammonium nitrate and mineral oil.

  • The mixture does not include nitroglycerin and does not cause headaches.
  • The Henamex has proven its efficiency in mining and quarrying works.
  • Thanks to the high detonation speed and its sensitivity to operation by No.8 detonator is serves as a primer for initiating main explosive (Anfohen or Henamit in bulk).


Use of Henamex

  • Mining and quarrying works in which explosives with high energy are required for rock crushing.
  • Mining and quarrying works, in which explosive with high detonation speed and sensitivity to operation by detonator is required, for initiating the main explosive (Anfohen or Henamit).
  • Mining and quarrying works where water resistant explosive is required.
  • Underground mining and quarrying works of horizontal drilling.
  • In underwater explosions, Henamex is resistant to hydrostatic pressure of up to 100 meters.
  • The high detonation speed and the high gas volume ensure good crushing and removal of stone.
  • Under ordinary storage conditions, the explosive properties of the Henamex do not change for one year from the date of production.


  • Henamex serves as main explosive at quarrying works of small diameter.
  • Henamex stands out for its high water resistance.
  • Henamex is packed in plastic cartridges.
  • The good oxygen balance and the plastic shape of the Henamex enable efficient use at underground works and horizontal drillings.
