Non-Explosive Rock Breaking

Industry West offer non-explosive rock breaking services across Western Australia and the Northern Territory.

When you are doing demolition or excavation work for a project, the method that you use to clear the site should be tailored to the worksite and the surrounding area. If you are working in a built up, residential, heritage or sensitive area, the traditional blasting method of demolition isn’t the best one to use as it is loud, messy and destructive to surrounding areas which can cause irreparable damage to the landscape and the residents surrounding the worksite.

As an alternative to blasting, many different types of non-explosive rock breaking have been developed, the most popular of which is chemical rock breaking. Chemical rock breaking uses a specially made slurry or mortar that is inserted into the rock via either an existing crack or fault line or a pre-drilled hole. When inserted, this chemical reaction is triggered in the mortar causing it to expand, forcing the rock apart and breaking it.
