Blasting Gelatin Ingredients
« on: 13/08/2004 11:02:32 »
Hi,

Could someone tell me the ingredients used in the preparation of blasting gelatin. Is gelatin used in the preparation of blasting gelatin at all? I thought blasting gelatin was made out of glycerine.
Then if gelatin (probably of animal source) is not used in the preparation of blasting gelatin, why is it called so?

Thanks
