Insensitive Explosives

One of the most serious threats against weapon platforms and their crew is an unintentional explosion of their own ammunition: fires, high velocity fragments and bullets can all potentially lead to disastrous mass detonations.

In order to meet modern standards of warfare, EURENCO has developed new explosive molecules with inherent lower sensitivity, thus providing greater personnel and combat platform safety in both peace and war times:

  • I-RDX – a variety of low sensitivity Hexogen (“Insensitive RDX”)
  • NTO – a low sensitivity molecule for insensitive explosive compositions
  • TATB – a powerful and very stable explosive for low sensitivity munitions
  • FOX-12 (GUDN) – a low sensitivity and excellent thermostability molecule for insensitive explosive charges, gas-generating compositions and high performance propellants
