Explosive Blocks

HEXOMAX is our new bulk plastic explosive.

RDX-based, it provides high detonation performance and exhibits outstanding malleability even at low temperature, and leaves no residue of exudation.

It is currently in use in both French and foreign armies. HEXOMAX has also been selected by the United Kingdom Ministry of Defence to replace the old “PE4”, thus taking the name of “PE7”.

EURENCO can rely on an entirely new, modern and automated line, thus enhancing its high-volume production capabilities.
