Mortar horseshoe containers
EURENCO offers NITROFILM and felted NC horseshoe containers for 60 mm,
81 mm and 120 mm mortar ammunition, matching French and international
EURENCO can also manufacture any combustible product design with high
energetic level and appropriate mechanical properties to be used as containers,
cases, increments, pyrotechnical igniters or any other shapes to suit
10/100, 14/100, 20/100, 30/100, 50/100, 100/100 mm,
This energetic product, which is mainly nitrocellulose based, is
presented in sheets or transformable rolls. The success of NITROFILM
is due to its high quality and good mechanical properties, as well
as its resistance to water and cold conditions. In comparison with
conventional celluloid, EURENCO NITROFILM avoids nitroglycerine
migration from multi base propellants used for mortar propelling
It can also be structured with nylon to reinforce its mechanical
properties without altering its combustibility qualities. Standard
26/100 mm for reinforced NITROFILM.
Thanks to their thermoplasticity and excellent mechanical properties,
NITROFILM sheets can be easily adjusted by cutting, sticking or forming
to obtain various shapes: containers, disks, cases, increments and pyrotechnical
NITROFILM is also used as thermal fuse or container for automotive safety
in addition to military applications.
Felted NC combustible items
Like combustible cartridge cases, combustible items of various
shapes and sizes are manufactured from nitrocellulose by the beater
additive felted process.
The combustible horseshoe containers for mortar propelling charges
can be impregnated with special additives for protection against
water and other pollution agents. Their outstanding success is
due to their efficiency and reliability in military combat under
all climates. The excellent mechanical properties give no residue
after firing, thus granting full ballistic performance safety.
