Ammonium nitrate is the main component in the formulation of most industrial explosives, and therefore ANFO (ammonium nitrate/fuel oil) is the most used and cheapest civil explosive on the market. This product is synthesised from ammonia and nitric acid in our Puertollano plant. Its microporous and microcrystalline structure is obtained through the most advanced technology that produces its specified density, absorption and resistance, properties that guarantee the maximum performance of explosive mixtures.

Its frequent applications include the production of:

  • ANFO for explosives for civil use.
  • Emulsions for explosives.
  • Dynamite.
  • Fertilizers, above all suspensions.
