Ammonium Nitrate Testing (Detonation Resistance Testing)

The HSE Science and Research Centre is an accredited laboratory for the Detonation Resistance Testing of ammonium nitrate materials.

The Ammonium Nitrate Materials (High Nitrogen Content) Safety Regulations 2003 prohibit the importation, manufacture, supply or keeping of ammonium nitrate materials where the nitrogen content derived from ammonium nitrate is greater than 28% by weight unless the material has a certificate attesting that it has passed a Detonation Resistance Test (DRT) or is otherwise exempt.

This confirms that it has an appropriate degree of resistance to detonation.
