Commercial explosives are for many applications including explosive demolition, avalanche control and in the mining industry. There is a high security risk inherent in the nature of these products, which may be misappropriated and misused by unauthorised individuals or groups.

Explotracer powder additives enable post-blast tracing of the explosive to the manufacturer and lot number, helping to solve criminal investigations and minimise the explosives manufacturers’ liability.

In Switzerland, Explotracer is tested and approved by the Swiss federal police.
