How Hipel 710 Works

This is a readily ignitable propellant mixture. The mixture is sensitive to ignition by flame, heat, friction, impact or electrostatic discharge. When ignited, the mixture burns producing heat, flame, hot gasses and hot particles. It offers a long shelf life and high stability. Since it is a simple composite propellant, it has less volatile contaminants than other available gun propellants.


As a core gun propellant (bore hole formation sampling), with high stability, improved shelf life and benign environmental impacts, Hipel 710 is well suited for use in the oil & gas market.

Hipel 710 has a long history of use by a leading provider of oil & gas services.
