Royex is a rock breaking system consisting of cartridges, deployment accessories and coverage. The Royex cartridge is based on a non-detonating propellant enclosed in a plastic housing with electrical ignition. During ignition, the burning propellant generates a fast expanding gas volume consisting mainly of nitrogen, water steam and carbon dioxide. If properly applied inside a drill hole, the expanding gas will fill the small natural fractures existing in the rock. The gas will expand the natural weaknesses of the rock into the nearest free face. This results the rock fractures to expand and the rock to break.Royex rock breaking official website
