NTO

Always in the forefront of innovation, EURENCO develops and produces NTO, a very low sensitivity molecule for insensitive explosive compositions.

Available in all standard particle sizes, and specific ones on request, NTO presents the advantages of high performance explosives, with lower vulnerability and enhanced thermal stability.

It can be used in:

  • Low sensitivity melt-cast explosive compositions
  • Pressed and cast PBX charges for Insensitive Munitions
