Abstract:

A castable explosive composition of 80 to 87 percent cyclo-1,3,5,7-tetramethylene-2,4,6,8-tetra nitramine HMX in dinitropropyl acrylate binder is obtained through careful choice of particle sizes. Up to 92 solids loading, without loss of castability, is obtained when spherical aluminum is incorporated into the mix. Other comonomers may be used in the binder and other solids added.
