The F and K pipecharges consist of a powder explosive containing nitroglycol and diatomite that is packaged in a polypropylene tube. K pipecharges are specially designed for dimensional stone blasting in quarries and other applications that need reduced and controlled charges. For F pipecharges, the primary application is smooth blasting and pre-splitting in surface and underground operations, however they can also be used in other kinds of blasting where a precise amount of explosives is required. When contour lines are blasted using F pipecharges, the damage of remaining rock is minimized, producing high quality, long lasting walls. In addition, the remaining walls will achieve the designed contour lines.
