This tamping gel was designed from the ground up with explosive breaching in mind. The goal was to produce a medium that would replace traditional tamping agents. UTK™ Gel is an extremely effective tamping agent that will not melt in high temperatures, will not harden or freeze in low temperatures, nor will it melt in wet conditions. Breachers are no longer limited by commercially prefabricated charges. With UTK™ Gel, they have the flexibility to build their own.
UTK™ Gel is highly stable and does not require any backing material for charge construction, thus reducing the amount of fragmentation.
