INCREASED PATTERN SPREAD
The blast energy which is conserved by the VARISTEM® permits you do do a lot more with a lot less. Multiple studies have demonstrated that the VARISTEM allows blasters to increase their pattern spread by 10% - 25%, without any reduction in fragmentation.
The cost benefit of increased pattern spread is easy to see. 10% - 25% fewer holes drilled, 10% - 25% less explosives used -- both of which can greatly help reduce the expense of blasting.
