These low HLB, oil soluble emulsifiers ensure rapid emulsion formation under low shear as well as build viscosity. Sorbitan oleates are compatible with a variety of fuels and waxes making them suitable for both bulk and packaged explosives. They can be combined with other emulsifiers to enhance stability and velocity of detonation (VOD).
