HMX & Compositions

EURENCO applies a special purification operation during the production process of HMX for oil well applications. This quality will therefore have a better thermal resistance, compared with the quality of HMX specified in the military standards.

Highly purified HMX present the following advantages:

  • High thermal stability;
  • Significant reduction of shock sensitivity.

It is designed to meet the tightest requirements, more particularly those of the Oil & Gas industry.

Due to these specific properties, HMX and HMX-based compositions find applications as components of ignition and main charges for oil well perforating charges.
