Redex is a special dynamite with an increased detonating velocity, which has been achieved by adding hexogen. Redex is primarily intended as an initial charge for Kemiittis and Anfos, for achieving the highest possible detonation velocity and efficiency at the bottom of the hole. The high detonation velocity assists the shearing of the bottom and minimises the amount of claws. Thanks to its high detonation velocity, Redex can also be used as a plaster shot.
