What is Dexpan?

Dexpan® is a non-explosive controlled demolition agent that comes in powder form.

When mixed with water and poured into pre-drilled holes Dexpan® generates an incredible 18,000 PSI expansive force that breaks concrete and rock safely and cost effectively with no noise, vibration or dust.

    • Controlled expansive cracking avoids waste of valuable stone

    challenging environments

    • Silent demolition in areas where you can not use noisy demolition tools like demolition hammers, diamond blade concrete cutter saws, hydraulic breaker or demolition wrecking ball
    • Non-explosive demolition when you can not use blasting explosives, TNT, dynamite, Nonex, primer cord due to blasting permits, licenses, restrictions and insurance costs.

    under water

    • Dexpan non-explosive demolition agent can break rock and cut concrete underwater by using plastic tubing
