Abstract:

Three heat resistant explosives were chosen as candidates for study of their physical and chemical characteristics. As a part of this study, the chemical synthesis and detonation properties were investigated to determine their suitability in applications to small explosive components. These secondary explosive candidates were subjected to temperatures approaching 315 C 600 F. The best candidate was selected for further study.
