Fordyn dynamite is a gelatine explosive containing nitroglycol and ammonium nitrate.

Fordyn is suitable for all types of blasting under normal conditions. Fordyn’s characteristics make it particularly suitable as a base charge for open-cut mining, underwater charging, channelling and for blasting in populated areas. Cartridges with diameter larger than 43 mm are suitable to be used as boosters for bulk explosives, such as ANFO and Kemiitti explosives, due to their high detonation pressure. Fordyn is also suitable for precision blasting, where extremely small amounts of explosives are used, as the material is easy to cut into small doses.
