HMX for Shock Tubes

EURENCO provides purified HMX to manufacturers of shock tubes for defence as well as mining & quarrying applications.Shock tubes are used to ensure continuous transmission of shock waves through fine explosive powder to ignition charges. The explosive is injected between two layers of plastic tube, thus keeping it sheltered. The quality of the product is however important to allow better conductibility, without interruption.

Compared with other ignition systems, HMX-based shock-tubes present the following advantages:

  • Easy to use;
  • Waterproof;
  • Insensitive to external interferences.
