1.2. Applying of the product
Detonating cord is applying in quarries and open-pit mines and underground mines as the rocks
explosive. The detonating cord is designed for initiation of explosives cartridged and loaded in bulk, and
for initiation of detonation of shock tubes the NONEL type in nonelectric detonators. It is prohibited to
use detonating cords when potentially hazardous atmosphere exists: for coal dust and air mixtures, and
methane and air mixtures.

There is threat of explosion as a result of the impact, friction, the interaction of fire and other energy
factors. Decomposition of the explosive is occurring in the temperature above 140°C. Very toxic
oxides of coal and nitrogen are produced during the heating and the incineration.
2.3. Remaining threats
2.3.1. Fire threat
The burning of small quantities take place safely on open space. Burning small quantities in closed
space or the combustion of big quantities are able to go to the detonation. The fire is able to arise as
the secondary effect of the explosion also.
2.3.2. Eco-toxic threat
The product is insoluble in water; a threat of the pollution of ground isn't occurring.
3. COMPOSITION AND INFORMATION ON INGREDIENTS

The detonating cord used in accordance to the destination and the instruction of use is causing no
consequences and it doesn't contain toxic components. They are be able toxicological threat from contact
with pentrit in case to apply the detonating cord to wrong applications.
Ways of absorbing: through the skin, membranes lockage, the respiratory system, the digestive tract.
In the case of swallowing: degreasing the arterial blood's pressure and pulses and headaches, the
syncope, weakness.
In the case of the contact with eyes: can be reason of irritation,
In the case of the contact with the skin or mucous membranes: be able to cause local reddening.
Symptoms of severe poisoning:
Pentrit is be able a reason reddening of the skin (especially a face), with the feeling hot, the headache,
mawkishness, the sting in the throat, stomach ache; degreasing of the blood-pressure which is able to the
collapse, body's vibrations, respiratory disturbance, and in special cases of death.
Symptoms of protracted poisoning: data are missing for PETN
Local effects: minor skin irritation in case of contact with PETN
