The Last of Pyrotol Announced byU.S.Government
The NEW Explosive JLJ
E. I. du Pont de Nemours
& Company, Jnc
PYROTOL is no more. The supply of
war explosives is exhausted from
which Pyrotol was made. But there is
now ready to use a new land-clearing
explosive, AGRITOL, made by the du
Pont Company which cartridged Pyrotol
for the Government. AGRITOL, can be
used stick for stick1 the same as PyrotoL,
We have laid in a good stock of Agritol in
anticipation of your spring land-clearing
needs. Also a fine assortment of blasting
accessories blasting machines, electric
blasting caps, leading wire, caps, fuse
and cap crimpers. Good blasting caps
are especially important. Don't try to
use any kind of explosive with poor caps
it's too dangerous and too wastefuL
Advantages of AGRITOL:
Economical because it has more tacks to
the pound: About 172 sticks to the 50-Ib.
case instead of ISO sticks of Pyrotol, or
86 sticks to the 254b. case.
Additional Strength: Enough to heave out
tbe large stump.
Emsg and sole to handle: Much less
inflammable; resists moisture; and doesn't
waste when cut in half or slit for loading.
Equally effective on all agricultural workt
Stumping, heaving out boulders, tree
planting and suboo-ing.
