This report covers the evaluation of low cost aluminum alloy granules for use in aluminized explosives, i.e. Tritonal, DESTEX and H-6. The alloy was evaluated with respect to its effects on batching characteristics, composition uniformity, thermal stability and impact sensitivity of the explosive systems. A comparison was made of the alloy and currently used atomized aluminum with respect to particle size and chemical composition.
