Abstract:

A new detonator, the Mk-112, has been developed and evaluated as a possible replacement for the Mk 57 mod 1 detonator. Its use may be necessary in applications where lead wires are desired in place of contact pins. The Mk-112 has also been designed to be protected from hazards of electrostatic discharge by the application of a conductive coating, Electrodag R plus 501, and a protective varnish to the back of each detonator plug. By doing so, a low resistance electrical contact will be formed between the lead wires and detonator case. These coatings can be applied at a minimal cost and were able to withstand all environmental and mechanical conditions required by MIL-I-23659 for EED design.
