Why use Dexpan?

DOESN'T DISTURB NEIGHBOURS OR SURROUNDING AREA
No noise, dust, blasting, ground vibrations, shock-waves or flying debris to disturb neighbours, surrounding structures or sensitive ecosystems.

POWERFUL
Amazing 18,000 PSI expansive strength that easily breaks reinforced concrete and all types of stone and boulders.

SAFER
No explosives, flying debris, toxic gases or compounds.

SAVES $$$
Dexpan saves money by improving productivity of mechanical demolition equipment and/or reducing the need for expensive equipment or blasting costs.

INCREASES PRODUCTIVITY
Dexpan weakens difficult materials improving the productivity and effectiveness of mechanical demolition equipment speeding removal time.  Dexpan also keeps workforce and equipment productive by avoiding shutdown conditions.

EASY
Dexpan is easy to use, store and transport.  Requires no special licenses, permits, training, certifications, high secured storage, special shipping or insurance.

EASIER TO HANDLE
Dexpan help breaks concrete slabs, large rocks and boulders into more manageable sizes and shapes

SAVES TIME
Applying for a blasting permit can take weeks, and at the end of the process, a permit isn't even guaranteed. With Dexpan, the need for a blasting permit is eliminated; delays in starting your project are avoided — saving you time and money.  

ENVIRONMENTALLY SAFE
Dexpan is non-toxic, made of natural minerals and environmentally friendly.

DIFFICULT ACCESS
Dexpan is another option when challenging environments make tool or machinery access difficult including hard-to-reach places, confined spaces and underwater.

CONTROLLED DEMOLITION
Dexpan allows deliberate demolition zones, pattern cracking and "cutting" along designated lines.  

WEAR & TEAR
Rock or concrete previously cracked with Dexpan is more easily broken, greatly reducing the wear and tear on machinery and workers.
