Toll & Custom Manufacturing

We have three well-positioned emulsion manufacturing plants and one specialty chemicals plant from which we can toll and/or custom manufacture emulsion blasting agents, oxidizers, and emulsifiers for explosives.

Manufacturing Blasting Agents and Oxidizers

Nelson Brothers has been manufacturing our signature PowerNel™ emulsions for nearly four decades. PowerNel™ products are trusted across the industry due to consistency in our manufacturing process and the high-quality raw materials that go into our products. Nelson Brothers produces our own blend of fuel oil and emulsifiers giving us control over the entire manufacturing process and providing premium emulsion products.  We have emulsion plants strategically placed in Alabama, Wyoming, and Kentucky. Each of our plants has a dedicated team of local lab technicians monitoring for quality control. With the added option to sensitize product at the plant, we ensure we provide the industry with optimally performing products that meet dynamic needs. Our comprehensive manufacturing is able to reach the entire U.S.

Furthermore, we are the only emulsifier manufacturer that also uses them in our own blasting agents and field operations.
