Abstract:

Cylotetramethylenetetranitramine HMX or cyclotrimethylenetrinitramine RDX and one or more additives are dissolved in a solvent and drops of the solution are dispersed into hot air whereupon the solvent evaporates and fine particles of the explosive with the additives intimately associated are formed. Reactive groups from the additives may then be utilized to facilitate wetting of the explosive by a binder or to chemically attach the explosive to the binder. Author
