Our quality standards

ISO certification
For over 20 years, Nitrochemie Wimmis AG has been certified according to ISO 9001 and ISO 14001 and thus stands for products that are manufactured in consistently high quality under ecologically safe conditions
Reaching for safer, more environmentally appropriate chemical use
As of June 2007, all chemicals in the European Union are subject to REACH, the European Regulation on Registration, Evaluation, Authorisation and Restriction of Chemicals (EC 1907/2006).


  • Obligates manufacturers or importers to determine the dangerous properties (e.g. how poisonous, carcinogenic, environmentally hazardous) of chemicals and assess their effects on health and the environment.
  • Also governs the use of substances as components/ingredients of products.
  • Prohibits or restricts certain uses of hazardous substances.
  • Implements an approval and restriction process for exceptionally hazardous substances.
  • Obligates suppliers to provide information on both dangerous properties and on the safe use of the substances.
  • Obligates commercial users to perform their own safety analysis if their use deviates from the recommendations of the manufacturer or importer.

Nitrochemie has successfully completed the first two registration phases of the REACH process. For the third REACH phase, which will continue through mid-2018, Nitrochemie is preparing further material dossiers for registration.


With respect to TLP, the prohibition of dinitrotoluene DNT in particular has far-reaching consequences. Some powders imported from abroad did not meet these requirements and had to be discontinued.

All our Reload Swiss®-brand powders are already REACH-compliant. Consequently, we have decided to document this with our own company stamp.

Storing powder

Store the explosive substance tightly sealed in a cool and dry place, ideally at a constant temperature of 12°C to 15°C and a relative humidity of 40 to 50 percent. If the air is too dry, the powder will dry out. This increases the pressure, and thus impairs performance. The same ambient conditions apply for storing cartridges.

Please also observe the instructions for use printed on our powder packages.
